Independence Day Celebrations!

Compatriots and Friends,

Yesterday was a very busy day for our chapter and rightfully so; 241 years ago our nation’s founding fathers signed what would become a rally to war and the beginnings of our great nation.  In celebrating the momentous occasion, members of the Patrick Henry Chapter and members of the William Hightower Chapter participated in three separate events!    Thanks to the leadership of Compatriots Jeff Wise, Robert Hites, and Jim Clements, we were able to split our color guard into two separate teams to participate in the Alandale parade and the Wimberley parade simultaneously!  To end the day in celebrating, our color guard posted the colors at what now has become an annual event at the Dell Diamond Round Rock Express ball game.

Busy, fun day!  Thanks to all that participated.

We’ve added pictures from all three listed below: Click the link or the picture for more!
