Scouts Needed to Retire Pulse Memorial Flags at Dr. Phillips - Monday

Greetings Pack 168 (and Troop 184):

Today, I received a request for scouts to assist with collecting the flags at the Dr. Phillips Center Pulse memorial to turn over to the VFW for flag retirement.  I am not entirely sure how it will go down, but I know that some scouts are needed to assist.  Since our units are the closest to the Pulse Nightclub, I thought it would be appropriate if we could attend.  All Jansens will not be available, but several reps from BSA and the Council/District will be there to organize/assist.  If anyone is interested, see info below:

Monday, June 18
Meet 8:45am at Orange County Administration Building, 201 So. Rosalind Ave, Orlando, FL32801
IMPORTANT: Since this could attract a lot of coverage, complete Field Uniform (Class "A") is required. 

Also, let me know if you can attend so I can pass it on. Thank you!
