Dress is Class A Uniform.  Bring warm layers and a rain jacket as it can be misty and cool in the morning. 

Please fill out the BSA Activity Consent Form and give it to Scoutmaster Webb at the beginning of the next three (3) troop meetings (May 9, 16, or 23).  Please note both a parent plus the scout himself will need to sign this form.


We will assemble at the LAUMC parking lot at 7:00 AM and leave for the cemetery no later than 7:15AM.  A brief Opening Ceremony will begin at 8:30AM followed by the placing of the flags in our designated area. We will be back at LAUMC no later than noon.

PLEASE NOTE:  If you plan to participate in the Montara Day Hike immediately following this event, please be sure to bring a snack as you will not eat lunch until you reach Montara.  A(lso, bring a sack lunch or money to purchase lunch in Montara).  Drivers will transport those Scouts to the Montara Day Hike event from the Cemetery.
Please also bring:  10 essentials, boots, and a change of clothes for the hike.
