Troop Helps VFW

Boy Scouts Josef Kolke, Jimmy Schweter, Collin Perry and Philip Lampkin of Troop 422 fold flags that were on display for Memorial Day at Enumclaw’s Evergreen Memorial Cemetery, May 26. During Memorial Day weekend Boy Scouts from Troop 422 assisted Enumclaw Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1949 with decorating the cemetery with United States flags. The Scouts put up more than 235 flags lining the roads within the cemetery. The flags that are used are casket flags, which have been donated to the VFW from the families of veterans. These flags are the ones which had been draped over the caskets during ceremonies and funerals honoring the veterans. Each Memorial Day VFW Post 1949, with help from Troop 422, put the flags up to honor all veterans. Troop 422 is chartered by the Enumclaw Kiwanis and meets each Monday night at the VFW hall. For information about Scouting and our activities, contact Tom Crews, Scoutmaster Troop 422 at 360-825-5331. - Photo by Monica Bainter
