Burke Centre's Flag Troop!!


Boy Scout Troop 1345 Appreciation Day


June 11, 2014 marks the 9th anniversary of Boy Scout Troop 1345 Appreciation Day, as designated by proclamation of the Burke Centre Board of Trustees, June 11, 2005, and henceforth, shall be recognized annually.

Over the years, Burke Centre’s own Troop 1345 has donated countless hours of hands on service to Burke Centre to include volunteering during the Festival, conducting


Earth Day Clean-Ups, performing open space projects, participating in numerous flag-raising ceremonies and more. Troop 1345 can always be counted on to assist the community when needed.  One of the Troop’s most visible contributions to the community is the management and oversight of the Adopt-A-Flag program where American flags are flown along Burke Centre Parkway on major holidays and during the annual Festival.  A huge debt of thanks is extended to all past and present scouts from Troop 1345, their parents and leaders for all they have done and continue to do for Burke Centre.


Boy Scout Troop 1345 is a Burke Centre Conservancy chartered organization.

Summit Crew Meeting Wednesday, 30 July

T1345 Summit Crew Member and Parents,
I would like to have a quick meeting (15-20 minutes) with the Summit Crew on Wednesday the 30th.  The purpose will be to go over the final administrative details and collect all of the required paperwork medical and waiver forms) so we are ready to go on 3 August.  We should have our elective assignments back.  Please let me know if you can't make it on the 30th and we will make other arrangements to collect the paperwork.

Calling all Troop 1345 Parents Who Like to Have Fun and Make a Difference - Be a Merit Badge Counselor

Posted on Apr 29 2013 - 10:54pm
We Need Your Enthusiasm and a Minimal Amount of Your Time.  Please consider donating a very minimal amount of time to the Troop to Make a Difference in helping our Scouts earn Merit Badges.  A fun and positive experience is guaranteed for all volunteer adults.  By volunteering, you are also setting an excellent example for your Boy Scout, and can work with him as you counselor other scouts.  Best of all,  NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!  Being a Merit Badge Counselor is easy and can have a very minimal time commitment.  Thank you in advance for your help!

I will be accepting applications and paperwork at the 1/30/13 meeting (I am trying to turn in a batch of new applications together to the District Leader in early February).  If you have completed your paperwork, please bring it to the meeting.  Also, I am happy to pick it up at your home if that is more convenient.
