Fair Oaks Cemetery Memorial Day Service

Posted on May 19 2018 - 4:14pm

Pack 281 Cub Scouts are invited to take part in a special flag ceremony during the Fair Oaks Cemetery Memorial Day Service along with Troop 380 and Crew 380 on Saturday May 26th at the Fair Oaks Cemetery, 7780 Olive St, Fair Oaks. This is a special ceremony with veteran's entering on their motorcycles to start the service, bagpipers, bugler playing Taps, and special guest speakers. Along with honoring our veteran's who are no longer with us, this year's theme will honor the military chaplains of many faiths that serve our military personnel. This service project is an important part of our community outreach and helps the Scouts to understand the importance of Memorial Day. The Cub Scouts are asked to arrive at 9:30 AM so they can receive instructions and do a quick practice. For most of the ranks this will fulfill a requirement or two and helps the pack fulfill requirements for the Journey to Excellence award that we strive to earn Gold in each year. If you plan on attending please register on the Event Registration site on at www.pack281.net
