Troop 111 Honors Veterans with Flags

Sunday, May 25th, 2008

On Saturday, 05/24/2008, we met at Belton Cemetary to pay our respects and honor the veterans buried therein.

It started out as a soggy morning, but the weather cleared enough for us to achieve our goal.

It was humbling to see so many veterans laid to rest in our city.

Afterward, we enjoyed chocolate milk and donuts!

Here are some pictures of the event.
