As Scouts, we leave no trace. We need to pickup the flags planted in honor of our fallen heroes the prior weekend at the Memorial Day Flag Pickup.

This does count for at least 1.5 service hours, if we don’t end early, it will count for more.

RSVP by April 30th if you want an event patch, if you RSVP for flag planting and pick, you only get 1 event patch.

Arrive and park at by 9am, meet us across the street from registration check-in, just in front at the circle where the cars enter.

Please bring:

1. Bottled water (there is no potable water there)

2. Scoutbook for service hours or service paper for signing

3. Jacket/Layers,  it is cold in the morning and gets warmer throughout the day

4. Comfortable shoes, we walk a lot

5. Put sunscreen on and bring with you to reapply
