Scouts spruce up Veterans Memorial Park

AN 1862 “PARROTT RIFLE” cannon manufactured at the West Point Foundry in New York stands guard in front of the Veterans Memorial Obelisk on the Bristol Town Green, where Scouts will hold a commemorative ceremony on Veterans Day.

BRISTOL — Scout Troop 543, which servers youngsters in the Bristol area, is planning to perform a community service project at Veterans Memorial on the Bristol Town Green on Veterans Day, Nov. 11.
Scouts plan a cleanup day on that Wednesday from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Memorial Obelisk. After picking up, they will hold a Veterans Ceremony consisting of reading three names from each Scout aloud and then putting the names up for viewing (for the duration of the ceremony). 
Participants will adhere to mask and distancing regulations. They are inviting members of the local American Legion to attend; Post 19 is Troop 543’s charter organization.
