Our Color Guard performs many times each year at special events like Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Veterans Day but also at many other events and even at City Council Meetings. We have a great, well- trained Color Guard and Rifle Squad, however, due to members working and having schedule conflicts, we always need new volunteers. If you enjoy displaying your patriotism and hearing applause, this is for you! Post 227 provides all the uniforms except for a pair of black slacks and black shoes; you only need to be a member of The American Legion Post 227 and be willing to get involved.
