Placing Flags on Veteran's Graves for Memorial Day

On Saturday, May 23, the troop placed flags on veteran's graves together with the American Legion (Atomic City Post #199) in Oak Ridge. We had 18 scouts and 10 adults participate. We met at Kern UMC at 9:45AM and headed over to Anderson Memeorial Gardens and then over to Woodhaven Memorial Gardens (Tennessee Valley Memorial Gardens). We were done around noon. On Wednesday, May 27, we met at 6:15PM to remove the flags. Afterward, we reconvened at the marina where the American Lwgion Post treated us to cookies and drinks.
