      Folks – see Carol Courtney’s message about the Flag Retirement Ceremony at Quantico National Cemetery.  It has been postponed.


      Please spread the word - Send it to your troops in case you have individual scouts going.

      Dave, trying to get the message out, we will reschedule tonight’s event at QNC.  I’m hoping the scout network will b e able to get a note out for each of the Districts and the NCAC board.

      No worries.  I do understand.  I will definitely introduce myself when we come to the ceremony.


      I just looked at the flyer I have and forgot that this was last years flyer.  I’m glad I mentioned it.  I only looked at the date and didn’t pay attention to the day of the week.  That would have alerted me because there is no Wednesday the 12th this year!


      So…  I’ll see you on WEDNESDAY the 11th.  Ha!


      Take care,

      Hi Dave,

      Thanks for your note!

      I'm not sure we will make it on the 14th to and from Fredericksburg, amid the area graduation weekend I95 traffic gridlock egress to the beaches!!!

      Please come and introduce yourself if you come to Quantico National Cemetery! 


      I am concerned about the date you noted!   Can you tell me where the 12th came from?  I specifically stay away from the Thursday Roundtable days and weekends when we schedule this event, so I thought we advertised this year at Wednesday the 11th on all our flyers to the Scouting communities.

      Steve & Carol,


      I’m not sure that I have formally met you but I’ve heard quite a bit about you.  I’m working on a new flag program for Boy Scouts and everyone keeps telling me about you.


      I’d like to attend your flag retirement ceremony on the 12th.  I’m not sure if my sons troop is attending so I will keep you posted.


      As you may or may not have heard, I am beginning a new program for Prince William County citizens – a Flag Collection Center at the Landfill on 234.  The collection center will open on Saturday, June 14th with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and will remain open during normal operating hours for the landfill.  I’d like to invite you to attend the ceremony.  I’ve attached an invitation.


      The collection center’s sole purpose is to be a conduit to get flags to retirement ceremonies and keep them out of the landfill.  In other words, the program will not endeavor to retire any of the flags but to put them into the hands of our local Boy Scout Troops and other civic organizations for them to retire.


      Please see the attached invitation for the specifics and let me know if you’d like to attend.


      Thank you.  I look forward to working with you to support each other’s efforts.
