Local Scouts honor veterans with flag tradition

Area Scouts understand what Memorial Day is all about.

Scouts from Troops 737 and 1776 and Packs 39 and 50 volunteered their time Friday evening and Saturday morning to place American flags on veterans’ graves at Bear Creek Cemetery and Evergreen Memorial Park in time for the holiday.

The soggy ground made the work easy, and the rain abated temporarily while the Scouts did their patriotic duty.
