I am a scout in troop 1808 of the Ventura County Council, our troop is located Camarillo Ca. I am working on an Eagle Scout project to help our citizens show respect for the Flag and would like your assistance. The project will be to design, construct & install secure boxes around the City of Camarillo, to allow members of the community to deposit their old and damaged American flags for retirement. The boxes will be checked and the flags collected at least once a month by my troop, and taken into our custody for a proper retirement. Excess flags will be distributed to other units in the area so scouts around Camarillo can be taught to perform a proper flag retirement ceremony.
The flags will be beneficial to not only the scouting units in town, but will show the Veterans and those who serve in our community that we care and respect our country and what they do for us. I believe that your organization can play a large part by sponsoring collection boxes in the community.
Donations of $50.00 or more can include a dedication to a service member or veteran whose name will be added to the honor roll on the side of collection boxes.
