Red White & Blue Gala

Last Saturday, Cub Scout Pack and Boy Scout Troop 256 participated in the Red, White & Blue Gala put on by the St. Thomas Episcopal Church of Eustis.
It was a neat time of history and patriotism. The scouts did a flag folding ceremony, each fold representing something. 
They practiced outside first:

 Then we all went inside for the program. (See George Washington??)

 After the Pledge of Allegiance and our National Anthem, the scouts did the flag folding ceremony while our Cubmaster read the script for each fold.

 We heard from many patriots! I forget who the woman below was supposed to be :)
 Ben Franklin:
 Some pioneer children!
 First African American Poet in America, Phyllis Wheatley:
 Martha Washington:
All in all, it was a great beginning to the week of celebration for Independence Day and our Cub Scouts did a fabulous job!
