Training from GSEMA

Are you thinking of starting a new troop?  Do you want to learn about the next level if you bridged in June?  Would you like to be certified to take your troop camping at one of the GS lodge locations?  Train for all of this and more in August.  Visit the GSEMA Activities page to see what’s available.

This is your chance to get ahead of the game before school starts and the next year of Girl Scouts begins (October 1st)!

Memorial Day Flag Replacements & Ceremony

Thursday, May 25, 2017

The Girl Scouts are invited to participate in Memorial Day activities again this year. Last year was the first year Girl Scouts participated in helping with the flag replacements — everyone who participated had a great time, and everyone’s participation was very much appreciated. It would be great if we could get a nice turn out again this year.
Please see below for details.

Thursday, May 25th at 5:15 pm: Flag Replacement & Ceremony

flagmarkEvery year Holliston veterans hold a flag ceremony leading up to Memorial Day. Scouts (and anyone interested) are invited to participate in this ceremony with their families or as a troop.

  • Participants should meet at 5:15 pm at the Holliston VFW (310 Woodland St.)
  • The veterans will split the group and direct participants to one of two cemeteries to help with the grave dressing (swapping the flags on the veteran’s graves for new ones)
  • After all the flags are replaced, everyone helping out will regroup at Lake Grove Cemetery for the burning of the old flags (a cool ceremony for those who aren’t familiar with it)

Scouts should wear their uniforms. This isn’t a drop off event. Girls need to have supervision either by troop leaders or another adult.
We’ll have Memorial Day Flag patches for the Girls participating — if you plan to attend, please email me (margaret@hollistongirlscouts.org) so I’ll know about how many patches I’ll need (or please email if you have any questions).

Thank you! Hope to see you all there!
