Flag Retirement Service

American Legion Post 156 conducts a quarterly Flag Retirement program.  To date over  2,000 U.S.A. flags have been retired with honor.  Boy Scouts, Venturers and volunteers are needed to participate in this event.  This is an excellent opportunity for earning Journey to Excellence service hours!

Only Remaining 2018 Date:
Saturday, September 22, 2018

The time frame for the Flag Retirement program is from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM.
The location is the VFW, 4225 V F W Ln, Ellicott City, MD 21043.

If you or your unit is interested in volunteering, please let Ron Whitehead and Dana Edwards know what date and how many volunteers will participate.  The e-mail addresses for Ron and Dana are (respectively) ronwhitehead172@verizon.net and dana_edwards@comcast.net.  Your service will be appreciated.


Inclement Weather Policy

The National Pike District follows the Howard County Public School System policy for cancellations due to inclement weather.  When HCPSS cancels after-school or evening events, the district's activities - including Roundtables and the OA Chapter Meeting - are also cancelled for that afternoon and/or evening.  The safety of our Scouts and Scouters is our primary concern.
