On Saturday night, we conducted a campfire program to which we invited the Cub Scouts from Pack 868, fellow Boy Scouts from Troop 600 in nearby Smith's Grove, and some Girl Scouts from a troop in Valley Station. All of these units had participated in the lakeshore cleanup and were camping at Bailey's Point. Each of the groups performed skits and then everyone participated in dignified ceremony to retire a number of worn-out flags at the end of the program.
On Sunday morning, several of these same units joined us for a morning worship service at the campground's amphitheatre. On the way back to their own campsite, the Cub Scouts from Pack 868 stopped to cross the rope bridge that the Boy Scouts had constructed.
