The program today was not blessed with good weather. See following pictures. In the first photos the Boy Scouts demonstrate flag folding. It has started to rain hard and we are under a shelter.
Notice the stream of water running under the Scouts.
Our stalwart Scouts.
It really rained. These folks hung in there. I slunk away and went home like the summer soldier mentioned in the Thomas Paine pamphlet of 1776.
These are the times that try men's souls: The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.
