Fox Fest 2014
This year Fox Fest organizers George Ryan and Kelly Nichols held their annual outdoor music event in honor of our Military Heroes. The event raises funds that go to a worthy community organization and this year they selected The Corporal Kyle R. Schneider Foundation as the beneficiary. We were so proud to honor our son Kyle and all our Fallen Heroes and Veterans. What a spectacular job they did orchestrating this event that featured many well known musical acts and hosted campers for the weekend. We were thrilled that they asked us to speak and address the crowd which was warm and attentive. Kudos go to George, Kelly their families and all who helped put on a great weekend of activities. Thank You from the bottoms of our hearts!<< New text box >>

Baldwinsville High School French Class headed by Teacher Madame Abbe Guillet took a trip to Normandy France. The students visited the Cemetary at Normandy and paid homage to America's fallen Heroes from WWll and also honored Cpl. Kyle R. Schneider by placing a wreath at the Monument there. The French Class students raised funds to place flags and personal messages submitted from the community on the graves of America's Heroes. A very moving tribute. These young people logged their trip in a blog(link to be coming soon). Madame Guillet is the daughter of a WWII Veteran who was wounded in action during the war.
CPL. SCHNEIDER'S FAMILY EMBARKS UPON MEMORIAL MOUNTAIN CLIMBS
Cpl.Kyle R. Schneider was an avid outdoorsman. Among the activities he most enjoyed was a lifelong love of mountain climbing in New Yorks' Adirondack Mountains. Kyle ascended many mountains in his young life and was well on his way to being a '46er'. NY has 46 'high peaks'; 4000' to over a mile in height, many with majestic views and very rugged and challenging trails. After the one year anniversary of Kyle's death, his family has resolved to honor his memory by climbing all the many peaks he did in his life. As you can see from the pictures we leave a small American Flag with a picture of Kyle attatched on the summit. We've recieved an incrediblely positive response from folks who find his picture. We are pleased to hear from people who are moved by Kyles life and contact us to express their appreciation and gratitude for all of our Veterans sacrifices. One hiker, a reporter, Tom Woodman, called and interviewed Kyles' Mom. Kyle continues to inspire and brings out the best in people. Kyle's story is featured in the Nov/Dec 2012 issue of the bimonthly Adirondack Explorer Magazine (see: Park Perspectives: A Day on Bald Mountain). http://www.adirondackexplorer.org/
Honor the Fallen. Committed to Service. Courage to Carry On.
