Memorial Day Flag Placement May 27th, 2023

In prior years, Scouting organizations in our community place flags at over 18,000 graves of U. S. Military veterans in Marietta National Cemetery. This service project is carried out on the Saturday before Memorial Day. The purpose is help prepare the cemetery for the Memorial Day ceremony that takes place on Monday. In addition to community service, it is an opportunity for youth and adults to learn about and appreciate the service and sacrifice of those who have given their lives in service to their Country. One is also exposed to the rich history of the Marietta area.

The event originated in the former Cobb District of the Atlanta Area Council Boy Scouts of America in cooperation with the National Memorial Day Association of Georgia. Since the 1990’s all Scouting organizations are welcome to participate. The Marietta National Cemetery is in Foothills District of the Atlanta Area Council. Volunteers from Foothills District work with the National Memorial Day Association of Georgia in organizing and hosting the event.

Webelos Woods Update

There has been a change for Webelos Woods!
Spend a great weekend at Woodruff and take advantage of the hiking trails, disc golf, big field for activities, etc.

Council has tentaroo setup:  so you can go into and make a campground reservation at Woodruff for the weekend of March 17th.

Don’t go looking for the Webelos Woods event as registration is closed off for that.

I’ve attached a quick video that shows you the steps needed to find the campsites.
If all three days in the date view are green, then that site is available to reserve.

Thanks for being flexible and let’s get these scouts out there camping!
