Memorial Day Weekend Service Projects

This Memorial Day, we are happy that our troop will again be able to remember and honor persons who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Please join Troop 701 in the following important service opportunities to honor those who have sacrificed for us and our country.

Saturday, May 29: Kiwanis Flag Raising and Strongsville Cemetery Flags
Strongsville Town Square and Strongsville Cemetery
Please arrive at 9AM on the Town Square. We will assist the Kiwanis Club with the setup of all the American Flags on the square. From there, we will walk over to the Strongsville Cemetery and place America Flags on the graves of local veterans. The flags are donated by the Strongsville VFW.

We ask that the entire troop is present for this service project. For first-year scouts, please attend, it’s a fun and meaningful event and it’s your first step towards the Troop 701 Service Award. First years have the honor of placing flags in the pioneer section which can be seen from Pearl Road.

Here are some things to remember:

-Dress in Class-B Uniform. Class B is Troop 701 T-Shirt AND BSA shorts or pants. If wearing shorts, remember to wear BSA socks. Do not wear non-bsa shorts or pants.
-Bring a filled water bottle.
-Pay attention to the weather and bring a rain jacket if needed.
-The service project will last approximately 2-3 hours.
-Please sign-up on TroopWebHost.

Monday, May 31: Memorial Day service project at Lakeview Cemetery
Located at: 12316 Euclid Ave. in Cleveland, Ohio 44106.

We are in need of at least ten scouts to assist passing out programs at the annual Memorial Day service at Lakeview Cemetery. Programs will be passed out from 10 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. The ceremony will last from 10:30 a.m. until approximately 11:15 a.m.

Please remember to bring water bottles as we will likely be standing in the sun for the entire service. Class A uniform (khaki Scout shirt, green scout pants or shorts, and troop neckerchief) is required. Parents and other family members may bring a folding chair. Please register on TroopWebHost.

Thank you for your time and service!
