Memorial Day Events

This weekend there are several events in which your scout can participate.  These are not mandatory, but participating in at least one will help your scout get a sense of what this holiday is about.  It also qualifies as service hours.  If your scout can attend please have them wear their scout uniform, which consists of scout shirt, neckerchief and tie slide, hat if they have one and either scout pants or clean neat blue jeans as well as closed toe shoes.
