Boy scouts place flags on pedestrian bridge

On a quiet Sunday morning when people were getting breakfast and preparing for church, two groups of volunteers gathered at the pedestrian bridge over the 101st.

The task: to place flags in honor of our country and our military. Boy Scout Troop 516, chartered by Forest Street United Methodist Church and sponsored by the Clarksville Rotary and Cub Scout Pack 516, also chartered by Forest Street United Methodist Church spent an hour on the bridge securing flags that would be displayed for a week during the 4th of July holiday.

“This project originally started when Councilman Marc Harris approached our volunteers two years ago. Since then, we have taken responsibility for the flags and have added this display as an annual service project for our troop,” states Adina Knight, Committee Chair for the troop. “We are happy to support the community of Clarksville and Fort Campbell and look forward to continuing this service project in the future.”

Pictures of the flag project can be found on the troop’s Facebook page “Boy Scout Troop 516, Clarksville, Tn.”
