Scouts to fold flags for troops

Jan. 05, 2013 @ 11:08 PM

HUNTINGTON -- Scouts from three troops will work to fold 300 pocket American flags for deployed troops from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, at American Legion Post 16 in Huntington.

Girl Scout Troop 1772, Boy Scout Troop 25 and Cub Scout Pack 25 are participating in the national community service initiative, the Pocket Flags Project, under the direction of Melinda Wells, leader of Girl Scout Troop 1772.

Wells said she discovered the program while searching for a community service project for her troop to become involved in and expanded it to two others to help with the 300 flags.

"Part of the Scouts is love for our country and supporting those men and women overseas risking their lives for us," Wells said. "It's a very worthwhile project."

To get involved or volunteer, email Wells at mindywells@yahoo.com.
