Inclement Weather Policy
The National Pike District follows the Howard County Public School System policy for cancellations due to inclement weather.  When HCPSS cancels after-school or evening events, the district's activities - including Roundtables and the OA Chapter Meeting - are also cancelled for that afternoon and/or evening.  The safety of our Scouts and Scouters is our primary concern.

Flag Retirement Service

The American Legion Post 156 in Ellicott City conducts a quarterly Flag Retirement service.  To date over 3,000 USA flags have been retired with honor here in Howard County.
Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, Venturers, and other volunteers are needed to participate in this event.  This is a great way to earn those Journey To Excellence service hours.

The next Flag Retirement service is scheduled for Saturday, January 19, 2019 from 10:00 AM to about 2:00 PM.  The location will be the VFW at 4225 V F W Ln, Ellicott City, MD 21043.  All materials are provided; please attend in uniform.

If your unit is interested in volunteering, please let Ron Whitehead (email: ronwhitehead172@verizon.net) or Dana Edwards (email: dana_edwards@comcast.net) know, along with how many volunteers would be participating.
