May - Strang Work Day 1. Troop hung plexiglass in dining hall, office, and trading post as part of COVID protection measures
May - The Patrols placed second and third overall at the camporee
As Part of the camporee, the troop was asked to retire a flag. Only two organizations are permitted to do a flag retirement. The military and the BSA. We held a ceremony at the evening campfire. As part of the ceremony, the flag is cut into the individual stripes and the field of stars. Each scout then placed on stripe on the fire and lastly the blue field. Below is a series of pictures showing parts of the ceremony. Ideally, Scouts would have been in full uniform but since it was the camping trip that was not possible.Flag Ceremony
Final Remarks during flag ceremony
