Other organizations may request 54th event appearances, but we can only accommodate them if we have available members. The short descriptive information gives you an idea of the program; please contact the office for a full description. These events are Class A uniform appearances.  Please let me know your interest and intent to participate.  Support your organization by setting a goal for yourself of participating in four or more events during the season.  Unless otherwise stated, our events can support as many members as are available to participate.  Some events will have a maximum requirement.

FOR FURTHER CONSIDERATION AND INCLUSION:

Our Company is working to schedule event presentations of our Program at the area Veterans Hospitals: JP, Bedford, Brockton, & W. Roxbury.  This seems most feasible for the second half of the year when we have fewer events. We have the opportunity for a tour of the Springfield Armaments Museum, Springfield, Ma and a CW tour of Mt Auburn Cemetery, Cambridge, MA.  Please let me know if you have interest in a tour of either of these and I’ll work to schedule a convenient time. It is an appropriate tribute to sponsor a 2017 Return of the Colors Ceremonial Sesquicentennial Event.  We need to start now for a program sometime in August/Sept 2017
