And so we began.......

Buffalo Troopers of New York City

History......Well not exactly.....HerStory

The chapter was originally formed in December 2005 under the name "Brooklyn Troopers"  and has been transitioned into the New York City Chapter.  The transfer was managed by Jacqueline LazyRider" Torrence Pina who became the President. The New York City Chapter parted ways with the majority of the old members that were of the Brooklyn Chapter.  

LazyRider thought it would best suit the chapter to  absorb all five boroughs and The New York City Chapter assumes the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Staten Island area. 

The mission of the organization is to educate the public on the history of the Buffalo Soldiers with emphasis on the 9th and 10th Cavalry Regiments.  This was done by conducting presentations at churches, schools, community centers.  We made our presence known by networking with local clubs and participating in their food banks, toy, back-to-school, and clothing drives.  The chapter has on-going fund raising events held throughout the year.  The funds raised are  used to donate to other charitable organizations such as the Veterans.
