Patriot Day, not to be confused with Patriot's Day, is observed on September 11 and is the National Day of Remembrance for those who lost their lives in the attacks on September 11, 2001.

For the flags program, the troop works with the Canyon Creek Home Owners Association Flag Program to distribute flags for Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, Patriot Day, and Veterans Day. As a result, the troop is able to raise money to help fund activities for the scouts by receiving a dollar for each flag installed and another dollar for every flag retrieved and stored. For the previous holiday, we installed and retrieved 487 flags!

For this holiday, the troop will meet at TBC at 09:00 AM to distribute flags on Saturday September 10. There will be donuts provided in the morning, and bottled water during the activity. We are usually completed within three hours and will meet to wrap up the event with with ice cream for all. 

The 2016-2017 patrols are responsible for filling the assigned volunteer spots. Scouts sign up under their patrol leader. Adults can sign up to drive for their scouts patrol or under Freebird (adult) patrol. Also, scouts can use the time for community and school volunteer hours.

Please see the following SignUpGenius links to sign up for distribution and or retrieval:
