Join us as Cub and Boy Scouts of 616 are being promoted, doing community service and assisting at the Elks Lodge.
The bridging ceremony for the Cub Scouts Arrow of Light ceremony is being held on June 11th about 4:00 p.m. at the Lodge. Cubs being promoted to Boy Scout need to cross a rope bridge. Confidence and teamwork are essential. We hope you can join us for this ceremony, once again on the lanai deck on Saturday, 11 June. Stay for the Order of Light which will begin about sunset.
Helping at Punchbowl National Cemetery to prepare for Memorial Day is a “Good Turn Day” for Scouts, and has been for decades. Cubs and Boy Scouts from 616 answer the call and hike up to Punchbowl; cleaning and placing flags on gravesites in the heat of the day. It is quite a chore and the work is deeply appreciated.
The public is invited to celebrate Flag Day on Saturday, June 17th at the Lodge. Cub and Boy Scouts will help present flags from our nation’s history in this unique to Elkdom ceremony. Open to the public, Scouts, Veterans and Elks will be sharing. See you at 8:00 a.m
Another service to our Lodge is the Scouts working with the Grounds committee to refresh the Peace Garden. Plans are being made, a budget discussed, items needed to purchase being priced and days to begin the work finalized. Look for the Scouts in their purple work shirts.
