Memorial Day Flag Placement
It is that time of the year again and I am once again hoping to carry on a wonderful community tradition in memory of Ralph Evans, one of the founders of Troop 737 and a WWII Army Air Corp veteran. We will be placing American flags on the graves of all veterans at the two Evergreen cemeteries. I would like to get the flags in place by Saturday, May 26th. My thoughts are to assemble at 5:00pm on Friday, May 25th to handle the placement of flags at the Bear Creek Cemetery (aka Old Evergreen Cemetery) next to Christ the King Catholic Church located on Hwy 74 just above Evergreen Lake. We will assemble at the Evergreen Memorial Park on Saturday, May 26th, at 9:00am.
This is a great way to support our community and honor our fallen veterans. Scouts can earn service hours toward rank advancement. Please let me know your availability as soon as possible for Friday afternoon, May 25th and Saturday morning, May 26th. I look forward to hearing back from many of you. Should you have any questions, please feel free in contacting me. Of course, living in Colorado, we must always be prepared for the weather. The flag placement will be completed, come rain, snow, or shine. “Be Prepared.”
I would like to ask that everyone on my distribution please be so kind as to share this information with their respective unit members. All are welcome.
I would like to thank everyone who participated in this event over the previous years and also thank, in advance, all those participating this year. Being a veteran of 26 years, it gives me great pleasure to see that we do not forget those who made such great sacrifices for securing the freedoms that we enjoy in America.
Yours in Scouting,
