Sarah Palin autographed baseballs at Yankee Stadium today after taking part in an autism awareness walk in Westchester.  After the game she traveled to Long Island to receive an award from Independent Group Home Living (IGHL).

Newsday has a picture gallery here.  Getty Images has various photos here.

News12 has a good video report here.

Excellent coverage at Conservatives4Palin.  Although they may want to note that proper english would dictate they change the title to Barracuda on Long Island.  But even then that would be incorrect since two of the three events took place on the mainland.

Heh, while searching for photos and videos I came across this cool music video.  Hat Tip Why Mommy is a Republican


We had the opportunity to support the Rolling Thunder NY 3 Memorial Ride to Highland Falls (West Point) today.

It was a beautiful sunny day and hundreds of bikes rolled into the quiet hamlet after passing through West Point.

Mayor Joe Donofrio did a superb job as master of ceremonies.  Some veterans from Montrose and Castle Point attended as well as many townspeople.  Bagpipers led the West Point Color Guard down Main Street to the Flag suspended by a West Point Fire Department tower ladder.

Excellent speeches by Gary Scheffmeyer, President of Rolling Thunder, Dave Hansen, President of Rolling Thunder NY 3, a WWII POW veteran and others were warmly received by the crowd.  Veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan were applauded.

It was another beautiful, patriotic day in Highland Falls!

After the service the Bikes rolled out on their way to Stewart Airport where Rolling Thunder NY 3 had the Moving Vietnam Wall assembled.
