Serving boys in Eastern Cuyahoga County (Highland Heights, Mayfield Heights, University Heights, Cleveland Heights, South Euclid, Euclid, Shaker Heights, Lyndhurst, Beachwood, and surrounding communities.)



 In a time when patriotism, values and wholesome activities are disappearing, we invite you to show your support for our country and the Boy Scouts of America through participating in our Annual Flag fundraiser.

For a suggested donation of $40 a year, Boy Scouts from Troop 461 will post a beautiful 3x5 United States Flag in front of your house for the following holidays:

Memorial Day – Flag Day – Independence Day – Labor Day – Patriot's Day - Veteran’s Day*


Local Boy Scouts will set up flags in the morning of the holiday and then retrieve them in the evening for proper storage. Your only responsibility is to enjoy a sense of patriotic pride as you and your neighbors proudly support our country and the Boy Scouts.  Please join with your neighbors in helping fund your local Boy Scout troop.

All proceeds from this service will support summer camp and high-adventure expenses of our boy scouts from BSA Troop 461. 


In case of inclement weather which would make it inapprpriate to display the flag another approved federal holiday will be substituted.
