Raising The Flag In The Rain
The boys’ Cub Scout pack and Boy Scout troop helped the local fire department raise a huge flag today for the annual parade. I was there to take pictures.
They used a huge flag (40 ft, I believe they said it was) and raised it between two ladder trucks. They wanted the scouts to help keep the flag off the ground while they raised it up, and the scouts did a great job.
Everyone at the fire department posing for pictures, all nice and dry.
