On Saturday, September 27th, Troop 96 participated in a very nice American flag retirement ceremony with the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). We had a beautiful day at Pier Park for the ceremony and the intimate crowd was very moved by the respectful treatment of our national flag.
As part of the ceremony, The scouts marched in, said the Pledge of Allegiance and read The American Creed. For one flag, they performed a complete procedure, cutting the flag into red and white strips and reading passages about America, as they dropped them one by one into the fire. They also sang “God Bless America” and Jason Doss played “Taps” on the trumpet. It was all very moving and patriotic.
Boys, you all did Troop 96 proud!
