How the service works
After you sign up for the Troop 26 Flag Placement Service, a team from Troop 26 will bury a flag sleeve in your yard. The sleeve is 15 inches long and is made of PVC pipe. It will be placed low enough that it will not be hit by lawn mowers. There will be a cap placed on the sleeve when the flag is not placed.
Flags will be placed for 5 holidays throughout the year. The Holidays include the following:
- Memorial Day
- Flag Day
- Independence Day
- Labor Day
- Veterans’ Day
A team from Troop 26, which will include three or more scouts and two adults, will place the flags before the holiday and will retrieve the flags after the holiday. Flags can be placed up to 3 days in advance of the holiday and retrieve up to 3 days after the holiday.
