Goliad Troop 60 Flag Retirement Ceremony

 

 

 

 

 

 

Goliad's Boy Scout Troop 60 conducted their flag retiring ceremony. They had collected several boxes and bags of flags from flag owners. Flags which were ...faded, torn or beyond repair are to be disposed of properly. Boy Scouts are trained to do this. Their own flag was raised for one last honor as the Pledge of Alliegence was recited. It was then taken down, properly folded, then placed thoughtfully into a burning fire where it would burn till no part of it was recognizable as an American Flag. A new flag was raised and honored for the end of the ceremony. Afterwords the scouts or anyone present who wished todo so, placed worn flags into the fire. The whole process was very moving. Thank you Troop 60 for doing this service for your community.

If you know anyone who may need a flag retired or anyone 6th grade or older boys in the Goliad and surrounding area that may be interested in scouting, contact Bethany Allen, assistant Scout Master for Troop 60 by email at HowdyB@gmail.com or by phone at 361-491-1413.

Lions meet the needs of local communities and the world every day because they share a core belief - to serve their community.

 

Lions have a dynamic history. Founded in 1917, we are best known for fighting blindness, but we also volunteer for many different kinds of community projects - including caring for the environment, feeding the hungry and aiding seniors and the disabled.

Lions give sight. By conducting vision screenings, equipping hospitals and clinics, distributing medicine and raising awareness of eye disease, Lions work toward their mission of providing vision for all. We have extended our commitment to sight conservation through countless local efforts and through our international SightFirst Program, which works to eradicate blindness.

Lions serve youth. Our community projects often support local children and schools through scholarships, recreation and mentoring. Internationally, we offer many programs, including the Peace Poster Contest, Youth Camps and Exchange and Lions Quest.

Our Leo Program provides the youth of the world with an opportunity for personal development through volunteering. There are approximately 144,000 Leos and 5,700 Leo clubs in more than 140 countries worldwide.

Lions award grants. Since 1968, the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) has awarded more than US$700 million in grants to support Lions humanitarian projects around the world. LCIF was also ranked the number one nongovernmental organization in a 2007 study by The Financial Times.

Lions help during disasters. Together, our Foundation and Lions are helping communities following natural disasters by providing for immediate needs such as food, water, clothing and medical supplies – and aiding in long-term reconstruction.

Lions are active. Our motto is "We Serve." Lions are part of a global service network, doing whatever is necessary to help our local communities.
