If your local service unit or council does not already provide information regarding flag laying at a local national cemetery, your troop can contact them to find out how to register and what you should bring. This patriotic service is performed by Girl Scouts and many other organizations annually and is often followed by a very moving ceremony. Don’t forget that flag pick up the following weekend is just as important. The Flag Laying patch is appropriate for Girl Scouts of every level.
Parades, flag laying, wreath ceremonies… These are some of the ways your girls can show their patriotism this Memorial Day. Help your girls choose an appropriate activity so they can wear the Memorial Day 2018 patch with pride.
This is great bag for preparing your girls for any of our patriotic holidays!
Use our Celebrating Community Badge in a Bag® to teach your girls about patriotism. This is a great choice to do before Veteran’s Day or Memorial Day especially if your girls will be marching in the parade.
This Badge in a Bag® will take about 1.5 hours. You will also need to take a trip to visit a patriotic landmark to fulfill the requirements. If you can’t get out with your troop, why not take a virtual trip and look at landmarks on the computer.
