The American Flag along with the 5 service flags and the POW/MIA flag are up on the bridge that travels over Route 80 on Palisade Avenue between Bogota and Ridgefield Park. This was accomplished thanks to the help of Augie Cabrera, Jim Lyons, Joel Karpoff, and Joe Krause, along with myself .

Great effort by four members of the Bogota VFW to raise money for Veterans' needs through the Poppy Drive. Thank you Joe Krause, Gerry Gaimo, and Alan Herrmann for making this program possible

April 21st 2018 at 1 pm (1300 hrs for military types), The Bogota VFW in conjunction with Bogota City Hall, Bergen County Administration, the City of Hackensack, and the Nam Nights Motorcycle Organization will be holding a bridge re-dedication ceremony for the Lt. William Ryan Memorial Bridge that crosses from Olsen Park in Bogota and enters into Hackensack next to Bowler City and the Ice House skating rink. This bridge crossing has been closed well over a year. Bogota High School will provide patriotic music, and taps will be played to honor the Lieutenant. We will also have bagpipes playing. Several guests to include local and regional politicians and honored guests will be in attendance. Lt. Ryan's friends that knew him in the military and in high school and his son, along with the Lt's bothers and sister will be in attendance. Around 40 to 50 motorcycles are expected from the Nam Nights will lead a procession over the bridge once it has been re-dedicated. Join us for this re-dedication and to honor a fallen local hero. Cake and coffee will be provided after the ceremony at the Bogota Rec Center and the park Pavilion a few yards walking distance from the bridge dedication site. This was changed from the Bogota VFW site to the Bogota Rec Center site due to travel concerns with so many in attendance. The ceremony itself will be held on the Bogota side of the bridge crossing, again at 1pm.
