As always, we are looking for new faces to join us.  You don’t need to attend all the events; a couple here and a couple there would really help us.  You don’t even need a uniform to start off, and right now and we will supply you with a Tri Corner Hat and Gloves. All we need is a couple of hours of your time during these events to help keeping our Color Guard ACTIVE!!!
