SCARLET GUARD COLOR GUARD
MEMORIAL DAY EVENT
 
SUNDAY, MAY 26, 2024
 
 
The Appleton American Legion Post 38 would like to extend a heartfelt "Thank You" to the men and women of the Scarlet Guard Color Guard who provided an exceptional showing of honor and respect to the veterans who are no longer with us. In recognition of the Memorial Day holiday, a moment of remembrance was recognized at two cemeteries in the City of Appleton on Sunday, May 26, 2024.
 
Members of the Scarlet Guard Color Guard [American Legion] Color Guard, the Appleton American Legion Post 38, and the Appleton Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2778 assembled to perform the somber salutes at: Moses Montefiore Cemetery and at St. Mary Cemetery.
 
Both ceremonies included the traditional placing of memorial wreaths, with a recital of a short prayer or tribute, a rifle volley, and the playing of Taps. The  Scarlet Guard Color Guard Color Guard was so honored to have so many in attendance; and the Appleton American Legion Post 38 would like to thank all who came out to support this time-honored event of paying respect to veterans who made sacrifices on behalf of this great nation.

FUNDRAISING EVENTS &
VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

CAMP AMERICAN LEGION SPRING CLEANUP

(SPONSORS AND VOLUNTEERS NEEDED)

Did you know Appleton American Legion Post No. 38 is a proud sponsor of a cabin at Camp American Legion? Located in beautiful Lake Tomahawk, WI, Camp American Legion offers a retreat for those needing a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

With sponsorship comes the need to continually upkeep the cabin and make repairs for the safety of our veterans and their guests. Currently, there are projects that need funding and volunteers are needed with the skills to complete such. We cannot do this without the generous donations of money, talent and time.

For a list of projects and sponsor information, please click here
