Lewis and Clark Facebook Image Our third community service group for today was at the Vancouver Elks Lodge Flag Day ceremonies at Kiggins Bowl in Vancouver, Washington. They assisted with usher duties in the beginning (passing out brochures and American flags) and then provided escorts for the VIPs to their seats.

Lewis and Clark Facebook Image While some of us were off marching in a parade this morning, a contingent of our younger Young Marines was at the Legacy Salmon Creek Healthy Kids Fair supporting that event for the hospital. Always a great turn-out on this event. Mr. Pobi, our unit's founding unit commander, works at the hospital ... and he loves being a ham in our group shots!!

Lewis and Clark Facebook Image Look at those red National tees pop! Expected attendance along the parade route is 450,000 plus television audience! Great exposure for the Young Marine program. Living in the Pacific Northwest, we opted to have the Young Marines wear their red National tees and khaki shorts versus their camouflage uniform. They're doing a fantastic job out on the Portland Rose Festival Grand Floral Parade route this year - 1st time ever cracking that barrier and being involved. We're looking forward to being invited back for 2017.
