The events will be at the chapter’s clubhouse at 287 Hadnot Farm Road.

“Everyone is welcome to witness this beautiful and moving ceremony performed by our local Scouts BSA (Boy Scouts of America) troops in honor of Memorial Day and to remember and honor the brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice to ensure our freedom,” a news release from the chapter states. The free hot dog dinner and fellowship will follow the ceremony.
