Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery New Year Good Turn

Don’t forget, Sunday, January 24, 2016 is the 7th annual Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery New Year Good Turn! As in the last 6 years, Troop 501 will be conducting the flag ceremony. This is a very important function, and a high honor for our troop! All Scouts and Leaders are to be in as full and complete uniform, as they have, to include: Uniform Shirt, Neckerchief, Woggle, Merit Badge Sash (for Scouts, only), Campaign Hats (for those who have earned them), official Scout pants (if available, otherwise nice blue jeans), Scout (or green) socks. Additionally, as we will not be wearing coats, all Scouts and leaders should dress warmly, and in layers. It is highly recommended that all Scouts and Leaders wear a black, long sleeve thermal under shirt, mock turtleneck, or sweatshirt without hood.

Scouts need to arrive at 11:00 am, so that we can practice the flag ceremony.
