Over the summer, the Varnum Continentals Historic Marching Unit participated in the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR)/Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) Flag Day Observation at the Dunes Club in Narragansett.
Later in the summer, Joanne Breslin (COL, Commander), David Trimmer (CAPT), John Greene (PVT), and Larry Mc Donald (LTC) presented the colors at the Nathanael Greene Birthday Celebration at the Greene Homestead in Coventry, RI. The Kentish Guards and Kingston Reds also participated in the event.
The unit was also honored to participate in East Greenwich’s Annual Summer’s End festivities in Eldredge Field, presenting the colors as the Navy Band NE Pops Ensemble played a stirring rendition of the Star Spangled Banner.
