Flag Planting Ceremony (Updated again)

Update 2 (5/25 10pm): We have 32 people signed up so far. The coordinator told me that they only have 350 patches to hand out & they may have more scouts than that, so be sure to get there early. The program starts at 9am & he said it should only last "about 90 minutes". Keep in mind that the flyer says 9-12pm.
Scouts & Adult leaders- make sure you wear your full Class A uniform. It gets you free admission to the Exploratorium.
If any of you are still interested in going, it is not too late. Just let me know.

Update 1 (5/25 3pm): We have over 10 non-uniformed adults signed up so far and have secured a group rate of $10 per adult and $7 per child in case you want to bring siblings along. More details to come. Stay tuned.

Hi Pack 1776 families-

I know this is last minute but there is a Flag Planting Ceremony at the San Francisco National Cemetery this Saturday. It comes with patches and free admission to the Exploratorium. We need a quick head count by TODAY to reserve patches.

Let me know ASAP if you are interested.

- I need number of scouts attending & number of Adults.
- Uniforms get you in free to the exploratorium, so dress in full class A
- If we have enough people, we get discounts on the non uniformed adults & siblings.

Yours in Scouting,
Cubmaster Ed

P.S. Only scouts and adult leaders in full uniform will be admitted to Exploratorium for free.  Parents will have to pay the general admission of $15 per person.  If we have 10 or more non-uniformed parents, we should be able to get a group rate of $10 per person.
