A Ghoulish Affair!!!

Our Color Guard spends the Saturday night before Halloween with the Ghosts at the Lone Fir Cemetery in Portland. Ghostly guides escorted almost 2,000 visitors on 45 minute tours to meet some of the cemetery's residents and hear the unusual circumstances surrounding their untimely departures.

We were part of the free community History Fair with interactive displays, snacks and information about our Sons of the American Revolution and Oregon Revolutionary War Memorial. As you see in the above photo, we brought along pieces of our Learning Trunk, items we take into schools, organizations, and public events to teach about the Revolutionary War and the people who lived in that time.

Good afternoon, Lewis & Clark SAR Gentlemen!

Thank you so much for serving as the Color Guard yesterday at our OSSDAR State Conference in Wilsonville! It was such a happy surprise to see your 2 new Junior members marching proudly with your contingent. ;-)

Attached are 4 photos taken as y'all marched in. Fair warning: They're a tad fuzzy but…..

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

The Lewis & Clark Color Guard of the Sons of the American Revolution laid wreaths on the veterans graves at Willamette National Cemetery. The ceremonies began in the cold and snow at 1pm on Saturday, Dec. 17 thanks to the Civil Air Patrol and representatives from all of the branches of the military. At 2:30pm our Color Guard fired a musket volley in salute. Volunteers then laid the wreaths purchased through the Wreaths Across America program on the graves of the veterans at Willamette. This year, the chapter's first year in the WAA program we sold 160 wreaths and we laid 53 of the wreaths on specific graves. This year, the cemetery laid over 900 wreaths, more than doubled from last year. 

REMEMBER our fallen U.S. veterans. HONOR those who serve.TEACH our children the value of freedom.
