Please join Golden Gate Area Council's annual flag planting event at the SF National Cemetery in the Presidio. Hundreds of Scouts of all ages and their families will help plant thousands of flags at the National Cemetery in preparation for the Memorial Day event. It's been the pack's annual tradition to participate. This is typically one of the most meaningful service events of the year, reminding our Scouts of the ultimate sacrifice many have made to make our country what it is today.

Scouts and Uniformed Leaders must be in full Class A Uniform. Friends and family are welcome. The ceremony will begin promptly at 9:00am. The event will likely be completed with the flag planting by 11:30am. Following the flag planting, the Council typically offers some light snacks. Scouts who participate earn a patch.
