Troop 514: Flag ceremony to open the session of the Oregon House of Representatives

Every other year, Troop 514 travels to Salem, OR to open a House of Representative's session with a flag ceremony.  This year we also also met with our State representative, Greg Barreto, toured the Capitol and visited with a justice of the Oregon Supreme Court.  The Scouts are both serious and excited by this opportunity.  I always enjoy watching how well disciplined the scouts are as they first practice, and then perform, this call to the colors and pledge of allegiance ceremony.

  1. Dear Eric, you bring the beautiful, simple things home. A flower, a boy's sincere allegiance, a troop in exercise, a rainbow.
    Thank you!

  2. Thanks, Sissie. There is so much to enjoy in this world God gives us, even though it is so transitory!
