Press release:

Cub Scouts from Pack 6069 and Boy Scout Troop 6069 placed flags in front of the headstones of veterans at the Batavia Historical Cemetery on Thursday, May 25.

The Troop has been working with the cemetery's historical society for several years on this project. 

It is a pleasure for the Scouts to provide this service to their community. 

Pack 6069 Committee Chairman Bill Brown made sure to take the Cub Scouts to the grave site of Samuel Wood, who is buried there. Sam Wood is the namesake of the Western New York Scout Council Cub Scout Resident Camp located in Pike. Sam Wood was the first Eagle Scout recorded in Genesee County. 

Boy Scout Troop 6069 is chartered through the First Presbyterian Church in Batavia, and Cub Scout Pack 6069 meets at Jackson Primary School.
