NSSAR Color Guard marches in 2010 Kentucky Derby Festival Parade

The Kentucky Derby Festival Week of 2010 brought a number of SAR Color Guardsmen and their families to Louisville during the last week of April. On the afternoon of Wednesday, April 28, color guardsmen and their wives were invited to the home of Secretary General J. David Sympson and his wife Evelyn for an open house, complete with authentic Kentucky mint juleps! From there, the crowd moved on to the nearby Louisville Boat Club for a "boat race party," celebrating and watching the Kentucky Derby Festival Great Steamboat Race on the Ohio River.
