Boy Scout Troop 633 Memorial Day Flag Retirement Ceremony

In what has become a Memorial Day tradition, Boy Scout Troop 633 retired tattered and worn U.S. flags Monday evening before a respectful crowd at Lake Calero for the 15th year. Piper Chuck Jamison accompanied the scouts with bagpipe airs as they unfurled each flag and committed it to the flames. This year 200 flags were collected in the community for the solemn retirement rite. The scouts told the group that the flag is a symbol of the freedom and ideals the United States has fought for in wars and battles where the flag has flown. Boy Scout Troop 633 thanks their charter organization Kiwanis Club of Rancho Murieta and the community for their support.
