Memorial Day Flags
On Memorial Day, we remember those who came before us and the sacrifices they have made. For over 35 years Troop 96 has had a tradition of coming together before Memorial Day to place flags on the graves of veterans at our local cemetery. This year presents some challenges, but we will still strive to do our best to honor these veterans.
Please join us on Saturday, May 25 from 9:00 am to 11:30 am at Avon Centre Cemetery in Grayslake.
• Scouts place flags on the graves of our veterans
• A guest speaker speaks to the attendees

• Attendees are invited to join food and refreshments
Please rsvp so we know who all will be attending.

- water and sunscreen
- Cell phone (if you have one) to help locate veterans: Veteran Graves Search
