Cub Scout Memorial Day Observance, Friday and Monday

Good citizenship is a core value of Cub Scouting, and Pack 722 will be participating in Wakefield's Memorial Day observance in two ways.

This Friday, May 27, we will be helping to place flags on veterans graves at the Forest Glade cemetery.  Meet at the entrance to the cemetery at 4 pm.  The veterans in charge will give out flags, assign you to a portion of the cemetery and teach the boys the proper way to plant the flag.  It's often helpful to bring a long screwdriver to make a hole for the flag.  Please have your Scout wear at least his Pack 722 t-shirt and hat, although full uniform is always appropriate.   Forest Glade is on Lowell Street, between Vernon and Salem. 

On Monday, May 30 we will be marching in the Memorial Day parade. Meet at the Galvin Middle School parking lot no later than 12:45; the parade leaves for the Common promptly at 1 pm.   The ceremony at the Common usually lasts about 30 minutes and wraps up around 2 pm.   Scouts must be in full uniform.

Please make every effort to attend - it's the least we can do to honor those who have served our country.
