Memorial Day

Each Memorial Day Weekend, Pack 32, Pack 43, Boy Scouts, and Girl Scouts place flags at Veteran's grave sites in the Santa Clara Mission Cemetery (490 Lincoln Street -  We leave the flags out for a full week.

Flag Placement: Saturday, May 26th at 8:30AM (should be done by 11AM).
Flag Retrieval: Saturday, June 2nd at 8:30AM (should be done by 11AM).
Please register below.  You must register to get DONUTS!

Scouts and Leaders should wear full uniform.  If you don't have a uniform, please wear something patriotic.

Some additional suggestions:
1) Bring a standard screwdriver in case the ground is too tough.  Stick the screwdriver into the dirt first, then the flag pole will fit in easily.
2) Bring a wagon if you have one.  These could be used to transport the flags instead of a car.
3) Bring water to drink.
