Local Scouts Honor The Fallen On Memorial Day

Scouts lay flags at the national cemetery.

Over Memorial Day weekend, Cub Scout Pack 125, chartered by the Wellington Rotary, showed their patriotism through various acts of service to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

The weekend began with the scouts laying flags for fallen veterans at the South Florida National Cemetery. This annual tradition allows them to pay their respects and learn about the importance of honoring those who have served in the military. The scouts were joined by older members of Troop 125, who also participated in the ceremony.

In addition to their service at the cemetery, Pack 125 took part in the Memorial Day Parade organized by the Village of Wellington. The scouts were proud to be asked to participate in the parade, which aims to honor the memory of those who have died in service to the country.

Leading the scouts throughout the weekend was Cubmaster Stephanie King, along with other dedicated leaders who believe in instilling a sense of duty to country in the young scouts. They understand the importance of teaching the scouts about the sacrifices made by those in the military, in addition to other lessons taught by the scouting program.

Overall, Pack 125 had a meaningful and patriotic Memorial Day weekend, honoring the fallen and learning valuable lessons about service and sacrifice. If you are interested in joining a Cub Scout pack in your area, visit www.beascout.org.
