The Honor Guard from the Johnson-Costello American Legion Post 355 will present the colors followed by brief remarks by Gibbs and Rushville resident Lt Col Win Harper USMC retired. Gibbs will then read the Proclamation. A bugler will play Taps to conclude the ceremony.

All veterans and the public are invited to attend.
