The American’ Legion’s Color Guard will post the colors of each of America’s services, and veterans will be invited to stand with the flags of their branch of service.  All Big Bear Valley residents are invited to join with the American Legion and city officials in this annual recognition of America’s veterans.  The Convention Center is at 42900 Big Bear Blvd. Doors will open at 10:30 a.m for the ceremony.  For more information, contact the American Legion at...
