Brea War Memorial Dedication

On Veterans Day, Sunday, November 11, we will be going to the unveiling of the new Brea War Memorial outside City Hall.  You may have seen the construction along Birch Street in front of the Curtis Theater.  We believe this is a great opportunity for the boys to be a part of Brea’s history and to honor the many servicemen and women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice or who served in the armed forces.

The program starts at 1:00pm and runs about an hour and a half.  We want to get there at about 12:30 to try to grab seats for the boys. Given how many people who will be attending, there will not be enough seating for all.  We request that the boys who attend be mindful of the occasion and give appropriate respect through the uniform.  Many current and former military service members will be there and they will certainly have their uniforms in pristine condition.

Yours in Scouting,
