National Society Sons of the American Revolution Event
This event was moved from Sunday back to Saturday due to the weather forecasts calling for extreme ice and/or snow. Note the starting time was changed to 11:45 am.

Attendance: Due to the COVID restrictions imposed on the park by the government the National Park Service is trying to keep the crowd size to a minimum. If you register a wreath, you can report this on the SAR Americanism report and your physical presence at the park is not required.

Due to need to inform the National Park Service of the size of the Color Guard and the need to be able to communicate with guardsmen of any changes you will need to register by December 31, 2021, on Signup Genius below to participate in the event.
