Scouts Invited to Participate in Memorial Day Parade
They are looking for a contingent of 32 Scouts – in full uniform! – to carry flags and banners. (All of the flags and banners in the parade are typically carried by youth organizations, mainly the Young Marines and Navy Sea Cadets.) The parade will be televised (TBD) by the Military Channel and Pentagon Channel.
Because of the size and weight of the flags and banners, only Scouts who are 13-21 years old are eligible. There will be no pre-event practice. It is anticipated that participants will be asked to check-in at 12:30 p.m. on May 30. The parade steps off at 2 p.m. and is expected to conclude at 4 p.m.
Specific event details will be made available to those who indicate their interest in participating. There is no cost to participate.
Please spread the word! This is another great opportunity to put Scouting into the hearts and minds of our local and national community.
The deadline to indicate interest is NOON on FRIDAY, MAY 20. No exceptions.
