Independence Day Flags

Posted on Jul 6 2017 - 6:01pm

The day of Independence has arrived, and with it the spirit of Independence is strong. This feeling has been enhanced by the installation of flags throughout our neighborhoods. For this reason, thanks are in order for the efforts of last weeks committed volunteers, who braved the rain, thunder and lightening. At one point, when the lightening started, the scouts were called in, and they received a brief respite from the lightening thanks to Pattie Otte and Sweet Firefly. Here, ice cream provided comfort from the storm for scouts and adults alike. Some adults, Randy Bullard, Jim Danen, Paul Howard, Bill Sproull, and Tim Fooshee chose to forgo the ice cream and continue to work through the rain.

As such, the troop raised valuable funds for scouting activities last week for installing the flags. However, the fundraiser is just half done. This is because the troop also receives a dollar for each flag retrieved and stored. At last report, Troop 1001 is the current leader, above and beyond all other troops and organizations in the number of flags distributed and retrieved.

For retrieval, volunteers will meet at TBC, Saturday July 8, at 09:00 AM to bring the flags home. 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 ice cream.

The 2017-2018 patrols are responsible for filling the assigned volunteer spots. Please note, Scouts should wear their Class A uniforms or class B uniforms if they do not have a Class A uniform. Scouts sign up under their patrol leaderIf they do not know who their new patrol leader is, please have them contact the senior patrol for guidance. 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.

If you cannot sign up on line, please contact me,  Mark Young at 972-358-9005.  Please see the following SignUpGenius link to sign up for Independence Day Flags retrieval:
