Memorial Day Weekend, Troop 48 helped the Berlin VFW place flags on veterans’ graves at the Berlin Cemetery. Afterwards, we went to the Berlin VFW where we held a flag retirement ceremony for the VFW. Finally, the VFW threw a thank you lunch for everyone.
Thank you to everyone who came out to the flag placement and/or flag retirement ceremonies and helped out! Big thank you to Assistant Scoutmaster Steve Teti for putting together the flag retirement ceremony and working with the Scouts to run it!
