I am pleased and honored to announce the Lewis and Clark District, Boys Scout of America, have been asked to lead the Great Falls 4th of July Parade carrying the “Big Flag” from Overlook Park. The parade begins at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday July 4, 2013, and winds through downtown along an approximately 16 block route. This is an all hands on deck event and is open to all registered Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturing Scouts and Adult Leaders in the Lewis and Clark District. Lots of Scouts and Scouters, over 100+, will be needed to take the 50’ x 30’ flag up and down the parade route! All Scouts and Scouters are asked to be in full field (Class A) uniform for the parade. This is another excellent opportunity for the Lewis and Clark District Scouts to provide a community service to the city of Great Falls and to be recognized. Come celebrate and show your patriotic and scout spirit by attending this special annual event. More details (times, meeting, parking location, etc.) will be forwarded as they become available. Please consider making the time to show your patriotism and your support of Scouting by taking part in this event. It would be wonderful to have several representatives from every unit in the District in attendance. If you are able to participate, please RSVP as a Unit to District Chair Bill Rutten at firstname.lastname@example.org.
