Good Turn - Jefferson Barracks, May 29th

posted May 20, 2016, 10:53 AM by Cub Scout

The Gravois Trails Scouts place an American flag on the grave of each American veteran buried at Jefferson Barracks Cemetery. This is a great way for the boys (and all of us) to show respect for the individuals who have served our country.  We meet as a pack on the grounds of the National Guard base near Jefferson Barracks. Please meet under the Oak tree near the guard shack at the entrance of the base. This is a guard base; all adults are required to have a picture ID with them. Please check in with the pack no later than 11:30 a.m.  Do not go into the buildings there; once we have a head count of scouts, we will pick up our assigned location, our pack ribbons and patches for the boys that attend.


Please bring something to entertain the boys before the ceremony at 12:30. (Keep in mind that you will have to carry it with you for the day.)  A map is included at the end of this newsletter.  Scouts should be in class A uniform.  Please make sure you are prepared for warm weather; including water bottle(s), sunscreen and umbrellas can be helpful to create shade.  Plan to come early; traffic tends to be challenging.
