Flag Retirement at Highland Tavern
Saturday October 21st 9am
Bring your worn American flag and participate in the honorable decommissioning of it and other flags with the Troop.
What: T179 has been asked to lead an American flag retirement ceremony. This will be a special event and an opportunity for all scouts to earn some community service hours they need for advancement. Come in Class A uniform if you have one. If you only have the Troop’s t-shirt, that’s OK too. I’f you’re on your way to sports practice/game, come in you uniform, but come
Who: All T179 scouts, their families and friends are invited to participate. We will be joined by a two time Purple Heart winner from Gloucester City
When: This Saturday, Oct 21. The ceremony itself will be fairly short – from 9:00AM – 9:45AM. I (Mr. Stine) will be heading over at 8:00AM to help set up and can drive other scouts over if that helps. Let me know (cell-856.816.8021).
- Set-up is 8:15AM,
- Ceremony is 9-9:45
- Breakfast buffet opened to all that attend from 9:45 on.
Where: The Highland Tavern, 308 Orlando Ave., Gloucester City.
Why: Robin and John MacCauley’s (Jack’s Mom and Dad) recently bought the business where they found a large American Flag that had been flying over the tavern for years, maybe decades. T179 will help them retire the flag with dignity and respect.
