2021 Flags Program

Posted by fsaenz on May 14 2021 - 1:24am
The Flag Program is a Troop 845 tradition where we volunteer to help Coppell's Rotary Club display flags across the city during national holidays.  This is not only a great way to show pride in our community but it's also the source of funding for the Scout Coin Auction. Thus the reason why Scouts are required to volunteer at least once in the Flag Program to become eligible to participate in the auction.
 
The first Flag event of this year is for Memorial day.  Flags will be deployed the morning of Saturday, May 29 starting at 8:15am. Flags will be picked up and returned the morning of Saturday, June 5th starting at 9am. Volunteers meet at the West Entrance of Coppell High School's  Football Stadium.  Please register now to help with deployment or pickup and become eligible for next year's auction. Contact our Flag Program coordinator Mr Todd Margaitis at toddthg@aol.com or at 817-896-7035 for more information.  Below you will also find the dates for all Flag events this year to help you plan your participation.
