A tradition for Wreath Across America, Pack 1591 will remember, honor and teach their young Scouts of our beloved soldiers Who: Boy Scouts of America, 10 Cub Scouts from Pack 1591 from Madison Heights, Michigan. What: In Conjunction with Wreaths Across America’s annual tradition, Pack 1591 from Madison Heights will participate in placing a wreath on fallen soldier’s graves. This reverence of service is something

Scouting instills in every Scout. Our young Scouts will use this opportunity to honor the men and women who served our country to their highest regard. Our Scouts will witness adults give reverence to the flag, each other, and our country. Many soldiers do not have a loved one who can come and place a wreath on their graves sites and Scouts want to do our part in remembering our soldiers.

As part of our Cub Scout Adventures, Scouts are required to complete a service project by “talking with a local hero” and/or visit a place of reverence.

When: December 12th, 2015 at 10:00 am – 1:00 pm.

Where: Great Lakes National Cemetery, 4200 Belford Rd, Holly, MI 48442
