Big Tepee Veterans Day Flag Retirement

Thanks to all the men and women who have or are serving in our military. Last night, the Big Tepee District of the Boy Scout of America conducted it’s 25th annual Veterans Day Flag Retirement Ceremony. Hosted by Troop 275 of Choctaw, the event saw the total flags retired to go over 28,000. Current and former members of the military laid flags on the fire for each war and major conflict starting with World War I. The public was also given the opportunity to place a flag on the fire to honor friends and family for their service.


Big Tepee Webelos Woods

We had great weather for Webelos Woods this weekend. It was a great opportunity for the Webelos to learn some outdoor skills while visiting the various Troops. Webelos were able to see how they operate and help them make their decision on which Troop to crossover to.

Thank you Ryan Vogel for chairing this years Webelos Woods and making it a great success.
