Thank you for everyone that has signed up for flag duty. The team REALLY appreciates it. We are still in need for more scouts and parents to sign up for more flag days. It will be much easier and more fun if we can fill these slots. We have many new scouts and this is a good way to meet more parents.
We have 4 routes. Each route has approximately 60, 8ft flags. These are established routes with flag holders in the ground. The scouts put them up, salute the flag and move on. We will try to pair young scouts up with the older ones. In the afternoon, flags are collected, rolled and put away.

Flags is a FUNdraiser that our troop has been doing for over 20 years. We have raised over $88,000 in that time, so it is a very large part of our troop funding. Only 3 troops do flags here in Colorado Springs, we are fortunate to be one of them. We are partnered with the Rotary Club and they do the subscriptions and collect the money for the flags. It is our obligation to get just over 200 flags up and down for 5 holidays. It makes it easier if each family commits to a holiday (or more).
Thank you for signing up for a shift (or more). Feel free to call or text with any questions
If you are new and/or not sure what you are getting into, please feel to contact me. We really do need everyone to sign up for a shift. We all like our holidays off. We are only asking for one day.
