We have adopted a section of the Cemetery and we're to place flags on the graves of the servicemen buried there.  Takes about 1½ hours.  Wear uniforms.  Bring/wear mosquito repellent.  Our section is number 18 and is bounded byCedar, Grove, Hill and Dell Aves.  You enter the cemetery through the East entrance, drive past the building and turn left on Fairlawn, right on Linden, then left on Dell. We’ll be parked on Cedar.


May 30 (Wed.) Retiring Colors

We will collect the flags.  Takes about ¼ hour.

 This is a way of honoring our country and giving service – both are principles of Boy Scouting. Parents and brothers and sisters are encouraged to help.
