At 08:00 am on May 25th, Boy Scouts of The Capitol District will sponsor a
Memorial Day Service Flag Placement at Crownsville Veterans Cemetery located on
Sunrise Beach Rd.
 
Scouts BSA, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts USA, Venture Crews, Sea Scouts as well as participants from other
organizations will place flags starting at 8:30 am after the memorial service.
 
Guest speakers include a local politician, Daughters of the American Revolution and various Veterans groups.

Over 21,000 Veterans and their family interred.

The cemetery staff will be in place and the gates will open at 7:30 and not before.

Anne Arundel Police will manage traffic on Sunrise Beach Rd.

We will have Scouts assisting with traffic and parking on the cemetery grounds.

They are very efficient so there will be plenty of time to park before the ceremony starts.

There is NO parking on Sunrise Beach Rd. - Cars will be ticketed!
Safety is our first concern.  That is a main road and we do not want anyone to get hurt.

Important Notes:

The Flags will be in plastic bins placed around the entire cemetery.

Please bring a 3/8" rod or large straight blade screwdriver to poke the holes in the ground
to assist with the placement and prevent damage to the flags.

Please be there on time, Even though there are 21,000 flags to be placed,
there are always plenty of people to do it, so it goes quite fast.

There will not be refreshments this year.
Please make sure that your Scouts bring water bottles with them.
Please make sure that we remove any trash we bring with us.
