From 1949 to 1957, the Carnicelli-Indelicato American Legion Post 1776 sponsored a Senior Drum and Bugle Corps, known as the Purple Lancers. The Corps was made up mostly of ex-servicemen and Legionnaires. They competed all over New York State against what were, at that time, the top drum and bugle corps in New York State, the East Coast, and the Midwest. The Corps also carried the name of Auburn, NY to the American Legion National Conventions held in New York City and Washington D.C. At these Conventions, the Purple Lancers from Auburn, New York, thrilled and delighted people from all over the Country. As a result of business, Family obligations, and the start of the Korean War, the C&I Post deemed it necessary to disband the Purple Lancers Senior Corps temporarily. After the Korean War an attempt to revive the Purple Lancers did materialize for a short period of time. The Corps was disbanded after the 1957 season.
