The Cub Scouts of Granby Pack 325 are proud to offer its second year of flag service.

The Cub Scouts will deliver and install an American flag at your property or location of your choosing the morning of the observance and remove it at the end of the day. The flag is 3’x5’ and securely installed on a steel post and aluminum pole. Each flag is treated with the honor and respect it deserves and is folded and safely stored in between each use.

The flag service allows you to display your patriotism or honor a neighbor on four national observances while supporting Pack 325, where 100 percent of the funds go directly to the pack. This fundraiser allows the boys and girls of Pack 325 to purchase uniforms and advancement awards, attend camp, run Pack events, and helps to offset dues and other Pack operating expenses.

“It’s a great way to support scouting and honor our country,” said Granby resident Tom Caputi, who recently renewed his flag service, and is both an Eagle Scout and a U.S. veteran.

Bryan Moreau, who earned his Eagle Scout rank in 1985, subscribed to the flag service last year and also donated another to his well-known veteran neighbor. Happy with his display and the professionalism the cub scouts exhibited, Moreau was quick to renew for both himself and his neighbor for this year. “It is a great activity where the kids and their parents actually deliver on the promise to do the work together.”  

The cost of the flag service is $50 per year and provides a display for these four observances: Veterans Day, Nov. 11, 2020; Memorial Day, May 31, 2021; Independence Day, July 4, 2021; and Patriot’s Day, Sept. 11, 2021.
