Event Description:  Come out and help your community by taking down American Flags between the Washington Square and Glendale Cemetery in honor of our Veterans. Also, earn service hours for your next rank advancement. We need 4 to 5 scouts with 2 adults per vehicle (truck preferred). The more help we have, the quicker we can get all the flags taken down along the parade route.

We will meet near the stage (usually a semi trailer) where Memorial Day services were held. Depending on the number of volunteers, we will split up and begin to remove the flags. Once flags are removed, we will drive to the city building on Legion Road to put the flags and stands away in the building.

Parents that are not also volunteering (please help set a good example for your scout and consider also helping!) will be instructed when to pick up their scout either at drop-off time or called later by their scout once that information is known.
