Mission applies to the following Region(s): Region 4, Region 5
About the Mission:

We have been requested by Justine Crowley Duncan to stand in a flag line for the dedication of a flag retirement box.

Girl Scout Troop 3082 will be donating a Flag Retirement Box that they made, as a part of their Silver Award project, to the Mechanicville-Stillwater Elks Lodge on Saturday, November 14, 2020, at 11 AM. There will be a brief ceremony to unveil the brand new box that will be housed at the entrance of the Elks Lodge.

Social Distancing will be mandatory and the ceremony will be held outside at this point in time.

 From Justine Crowley Duncan's request

 Since the Girl Scout Troop took this endeavor on, they have exhibited their Patriotism and enthusiasm about the gift they are giving our Lodge. I was hoping that the Patriot Guard could come to form a flag line on the perimeter of the space we are setting up for the ceremony. I think it will be an awesome display for the Girl Scout Troop whom I am sure has never seen the Patriot Guard Riders in action. Given the nature of the unveiling being for retired flags, I thought it would be amazing for PGR to be there with their flags flying proudly.

If anyone has any flags to retire, this would be an awesome time to bring them!
