Scouts properly dispose of flag

Boy Scouts Carson DeClue, left, and James Anderson of Troop 514 prepare an American flag for appropriate disposal as specified by the U.S. Flag Code, on Wednesday, June 8, 2021, at the conclusion of the Friends of Scouting Breakfast at Riverside Park’s pavilion. The flag, which was becoming tattered, was displayed throughout the breakfast before it was formally retired. About 90 people attended the annual breakfast, raising $16,000 for Boy Scouts of America’s Blue Mountain Council. Those honored at the breakfast included the husband and wife team of Lloyd and Janice Nelson, of Baker City, who received the Eagle Within Award that goes to outstanding adult volunteers for scouting in its Eastern Oregon District. The Nelsons have been Cub Scout and Boy Scout volunteers for three decades.
