Eagle Scout Installs New Flag-Holders in Town Center
Ben Taylor on the Avenue of Flags, Main Street
Ben Taylor of BSA Troop 3 Groton (pictured against the recent Veteran's Day flag display) completed his Eagle project to replace all the in-ground flag holders along the Avenue of Flags on Main and Hollis streets. The new flag holders offer a more stable base for the poles so that they can better withstand wind, rain, and frost heaves.
The Avenue of Flags was started as a service project by the Groton Woman's Club in 1985. Troop 3 has posted and maintained the Avenue of Flags in Groton Center since their installation. Troop 3 will be looking to upgrade the Groton Center set of 145 flags and poles in an upcoming service project. Photograph courtesy of Jon Taylor.
