Memorial Weekend

As Girl Scouts we have two opportunities to participate in the Memorial Weekend services and celebrations.

On Saturday, May 29th, we are invited to lay flowers on the graves of all the soldiers resting in the Boalsburg Cemetery. The flowers will be in a bucket for scouts to pick up anytime Saturday afternoon. Please let us know how many scouts you will have in attendance so we can make sure to have enough flowers.

On Monday, May 31st, we are invited to participate in the Ladies Walk to the Graves. We join other groups besides the vintage ladies such as the military reenacters, local Boy Scout troops, local military groups and many others. We help lead the townspeople to the cemetery. The ceremony last about an hour to an hour and a half and ends with cannon fire. This is a very solemn ceremony.
