Flag Placement

May 18, 2019

Scouts are required to wear their Class A (khaki uniform shirt), neckerchief and slide for this service project.  If a scout is not wearing the proper attire, he will not be able to participate and will be instructed to go home to get the proper items.  No sandals or open toe shoes are allowed.

Adults are encouraged to stay and help since many of the grave markers are very old and difficult to read in some areas.  The cemetery supplies maps and the flags.  All scouts will be properly instructed in the proper placement of flags and decorum while on the cemetery grounds.

Participating scouts will receive service hours credit for the time they participate, so be sure to sign in and out with scout leadership.  Generally, it takes about 1.5-2 hrs depending on the number of scouts and parents in attendance.
