Memorial Day Weekend
By Tyler H.
Saturday morning of Memorial Day weekend at 8 o’clock, Troop 412 met at the Olathe cemetery to help put up American flags next to the grave stones of military veterans. We did this in celebration of Memorial Day. We had a good turnout of scouts. At least 8 scouts attend as well as some parents also. It took a little over an hour to put all the flags where they were supposed to go for the military people.
We were given maps of our assigned sections with names and locations of the graves of veterans. We received the right amount of flags for the veterans in the graves. We put the flags in the ground to show everyone these people were the people who fought for freedom to give us freedom today. They were the people who risked their lives to give us our freedom and privileges. After we finished a certain section, we went back to do another section. Everyone kept doing this until we were finished with all of the sections. At the end our troop received donuts the Mr. Emch’s had bought for our troop. Then we all left and enjoyed the rest of our day.
