Islanders Jackie Pritchard Glor and Margaret Ann Haller are heading up the “Ride for Roswell” rider experience committee along with Terry Carbone, a retired Roswell Park pediatric nurse practitioner.

“The West River Bike Trail along the mighty Niagara River is positively beautiful and we are excited it is such a popular route for the ‘Ride for Roswell,’ ” they said. “We are inviting the community to register for the ‘Ride for Roswell’ or come support the riders on Saturday, Aug. 7. It will be a wonderful site to see horse walking and/or trotting alongside the riders on the grassy median thanks to the Niagara County Sheriff’s mounted patrol. The committee has also added a new venue to perform and cheer on the riders, and we invite the community to join us in this great experience and tradition of the ‘Ride for Roswell.’ ”

√ 8:30-9:30 a.m., Fred Astaire Dance Studio, Williamsville

√ 9:30-10 a.m., Ms. Cathy’s Dance Studio

√ 10 a.m.to 12:30 p.m., Matt’s Music vocal performance team
