Quiet tradition in North Star units

Image Posted on Updated on

Several units in the North Star District have quietly honored our late military servicemen.

Two separate American Legion Posts have teamed up with local scouting units to gather and give respect for military members who have died. Each gathering is a little bit different.

In Zionsville, the American Legion Post #79 hosts the scout units on Saturday, May 16, 2015. Scout at gravesitePost #79 serves as the chartered organization for Pack 105, Troop 804, and Crew 408. These units will gather together. The units will then break into teams to place flags on military graves in and around Zionsville.

In Broad Ripple, the American Legion Post #3 hosts a slightly different event on Saturday, May 23, 2015. This event is open to all scout troops, regardless of chartering organization. For the past 10-15 years Troop 18 has participated. In recent years, Pack 35 and Troop 35 have participated, too. Post #3 serves breakfast beginning at 7:00 AM at the Post, located at 6379 N College Ave, Indianapolis, IN 46220. This Post places flags at Union Chapel Cemetery and Crown Hill Cemetery. To participate in the breakfast, the Post asks for RSVPs by Wednesday via email to Rees Morgan or by phone to (317)924-2154.

If units decide to participate in the Post #3 event, please provide statistical information at this link.  This does NOT replace the need to contact Mr. Morgan, but it does help the District Programming Committee track participation in community events.
