The Arlington 4th of July Association is looking for Scouts to serve as Flag Bearers/Color Guards along our parade route and to help lead Parade spectators in singing our National Anthem


Need: Color Guards/Flag Bearers, in uniform, spaced along the entire 2 mile Parade route. The Color Guards/Flag Bearers may be as few as 2 Scouts (this is a minimum – bring as many along as you can).  We are requesting one leader or parent and at least 2 scouts from each unit, in Class A uniform. Please bring an American flag and your unit flag.

What:  The Guards/Flag Bearers will be spaced evenly along the Parade route, while our announcing stands play the National Anthem.  The Color Guards/Flag Bearers will be in the middle of the street to serve as a focal point for parade spectators.  Each Scout should be in Class A uniform.


Why:  This is an opportunity to showcase your troop to more than 40,000 people while showing your Patriotic Spirit and your Scout Pride!

June Scout Roundtable

Just like the OA song goes: "weld tightly every link", the June Scout Roundtable is going to be about welding! The new Welding Merit badge is to be presented by Scouter Dwight Grayson.
The June 11th Scout Roundtable will begin at 7:30Pm and it is to be held at the Pantego Christian Academy on Park Row. You are encouraged to come and bring a Scout troop representative to hear all about this new merit badge. While the presentation will not be a merit badge class, it is designed to introduce the District leaders to this new badge. It will be a learning opportunity for us all. Please come!
