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.
