Hope Scouts from Troop 5 and Pack 5 placed American flags on the graves of
veterans on Memorial Day morning. The 800-900 flags were purchased by the
Hope Lions Club, Hope Kiwanis Club and the Hope Rotary Club. Keenan Williams
at LaGrone Williams Hardware procures the flags at wholesale for the Scouts.

Ed Flagg coordinates the donations.

Scout Troop 5 and Cub Scout Pack 5 are sponsored by the Century bible Class
of Hope’s First United Methodist Church.
