Flags Over Batavia is a great way to support local Batavia boy scouts! Help support local Boy Scout Troop 6 while showing your patriotism and helping foster community unity within Batavia.
For a $25 annual fee, scouts from Troop 6 will install a PVC pipe in your front yard near the curb, flush with the ground. It will not interfere with lawn mowing or lawn care. On five different holidays, scouts will place a 2’ x 3’ flag in your yard and retire the flag in the evening. Troop 6 will store and maintain the flags.
Batavia has a special part in the history of Flag Day, and 2016 is the 100th anniversary of the observance of Flag Day. Batavia is planning to commemorate this significant anniversary with special activities. This is a great year to become part of Flags Over Batavia! Troop 6 has been a Batavia service organization for over 90 years, & is one of the oldest troops in the Three Fires Council. Over the years the troop has mentored hundreds of boys.
