Volunteers gather here every year to honor the the fallen and commemorate the dead. From World War I to the Korean War, each white cross bore the name of an honored veteran, an American flag and a paper flower.
Cub Scouts from Pack 80 from the Spanish Fork 12th Ward enjoyed helping decorate the crosses and their leaders used the service project as a learning tool.
Dutton said they try to teach the boys about the meaning behind all the crosses they decorate by telling them that each of those people were little boys and little girls once and they fought to protect our freedoms.
“It’s great for the boys to learn patriotism and reverence for those who have passed,” Annaleis Smith, another den leader for Pack 80 said.
What other great service projects have your Scouts done for Memorial Day?
