Troop 1345 - "The Best Troop Alive!"

Welcome to Troop 1345

Labor Day & Burke Fall Festival & Patriot Day - Raise Flags along Burke Centre Parkway - Monday, 5 September; Saturday & Sunday,

Posted on Aug 21 2016 - 9:43pm
Please join us for our annual triple flag-raising opportunity!  We need a minimum of five scout families, or seven families in all, to commit to raising flags along Burke Centre Parkway on each of three days in September 2016 - Monday, 5th; Saturday, 10th; Sunday, 11th - in honor of Labor Day & Burke Fall Festival & Patriot Day.  It will take about an hour of your time each of the three mornings, and about an hour each of the three afternoons.  No experience necessary!  
Please sign up on-line by September 2 as maps are assigned in advance.  IMPORTANT: If you sign-up, please be sure to mark it on the family calendar to avoid a no-show.  Earn up to six service hours per person - scout families can rack up the service hours in a friendly “RACE for the FLAG!” competition, which is wide open this year due to two flag raising weather cancellations - it’s anybody’s race!  See “Event Details” for further information.
All Troop 1345 Scout Families 
If your family is unable to join us this time, please choose from ten holidays throughout the year - see “Event Details” for a list of federal holidays observed by the Adopt-A-Flag Program.  This service opportunity is a fun, family activity that demonstrates patriotism, responsibility, helps promote our troop, and supports our sponsor, Burke Centre Conservancy, which provides our meeting space and gear storage all year - EVERY scout family is strongly encouraged to participate in the Adopt-A-Flag Program at least once per year.  Thank you for your thoughtful consideration.
