Douglas Cub Scout Pack 316 Places Flags for Memorial Day

A Scout is Reverent-- Cub Scout Pack 316 proudly replaced the flags on the graves of military veterans at St. Denis Cemetery in Douglas, MA. “There are over 350 veterans buried here, and it’s our honor to help their families remember their service and sacrifices. It’s hard work, but our Scouts work together every year to make sure each and every one has a brand new flag,” says Pack 316’s Cubmaster. This year, about 20 Scouts and their families participated.
Pack 316 has a longstanding history of serving the community. Over the last couple of years, we have raised thousands of dollars in Heroes and Helpers donations which help provide gifts to first responders, troops at-home or overseas, veterans, and military families. In addition to the flag replacement, the boys and girls of Pack 316 also march in Veteran’s Day parades, clean up trash around town for Earth Day, and support our local teachers and first responders.

Our Pack provides lifelong memories and friendship for elementary school aged children in Douglas MA and the surrounding area.
