The city of Brea will commemorate Veteran’s Day this year with a service for veterans and city residents at the Brea War Memorial. The city has asked our troop for assistance in this venture:
On Saturday, October 24th, we will be cleaning the war memorial. This involves hand scrubbing the wording on the individual tiles on the memorial. It is not difficult work, but there are many tiles to clean. We will start at 8:00 am and be finished in approximately three hours. Scouts should wear their class B shirt with any pants and shoes that can get dirty. These service hours can be used towards rank advancement.
On Wednesday, November 15h, the actual ceremony will take place. The city has asked for our scouts to pass out programs to those who attend. Scouts should wear their complete class A uniform, and be at the War Memorial from 9:15 – 10:45. This service hour can be considered your good turn for the day in honor of our veterans.
Let’s show the city our commitment to the Scout oath and do our duty. Please sign up for either or both of these service opportunities here:
