Show your patriotism and support your local Scouts!
The 2022 Holiday Flag Program is a fundraiser offered through Scout Troop 615 based at Church of the Resurrection in Ellicott City, MD. Your suggested $50 donation ensures that an American flag will be displayed at your home during the week of each of four patriotic holidays in 2022:
o Memorial Day (Monday, May 30) — Flag displayed from May 28 to June 4, 2022
o Independence Day (Monday, July 4) — Flag displayed from July 2 to 9 (may may be placed a day or two early based on scout availability )
o Labor Day (Monday, September 5) — Flag displayed from September 3 to 17
o Veteran’s Day (Friday, November 11) — Flag displayed from November 6 to 13
NOTE: All dates are tentative and subject to change based weather events which may impact the safe installation, display, or removal of flags.
All funds raised through this program will directly benefit Scouts in Troop 615 to help pay the costs of Summer Camp, monthly camping trips, High Adventure, Eagle Scout projects, and other leadership and character development opportunities.
For 2022, this program is offered only to residents of the community surrounding Church of the Resurrection in Ellicott City, MD (commonly known as Valley Mede).
Scouts from Troop 615 will place an American flag in front of each donor’s home for one week – typically Saturday to Saturday – surrounding each Holiday. For the Labor Day Holiday, flags will be installed for a two (2) week period to include the anniversary of 9/11.
Each flag installation will consist of a crisp, 5’x3’ American flag on a sturdy 10-foot pole (held by a metal stake driven approximately 8” into the ground), near your mailbox, driveway or other spot designated by you. Flags will be lit from sunset to sunrise using 2 solar lights.
