Veterans Legacy: Welcome Home Parade April 28, 2012 - Public welcome

The Veterans Legacy is dedicated to preserving as many individual remembrances as possible and we honor the legacy of all veterans through this project. We hope that students and the general public will learn the true meaning of service by sharing and participating in our activities.
The Veterans Legacy Project respectively requests your attendance at the Welcome Home Parade 2012. We are planning a Flag Passing Ceremony, and
hope you will consider attending the event in support and or participating in the Flag Passing Ceremony. We are welcoming previous combat veterans to join us and pass flags with our current combat Iraq and Afghanistan veterans, welcoming them home.
You can sign up on a special “page” on the
legacy website or at Whenever possible we ask that each post/league gather a list of veterans and forward the numbers as soon as possible. If you wish to have your Color Guard walk in the Parade please contact Bob Dimond 484-444-0200. We hope you will see this
project as worthy of your support as well, all financial support will go directly toward the logistics and preparation of the 2012 Parades. Contact
