This is an annual Scouting event to honor the memory of our 29th President of the United States, Warren G. Harding and First Lady Florence Kling Harding, both of whom served as honorary presidents of the Boy Scouts of America and the Girl Scouts of the United States of America. All Scout groups from any area are welcome to attend and commemorative patches are available for those participating. The parade will begin at 3:00 pm with ceremony beginning at 3:30 pm  at the Harding Memorial.  Over 500 scouts gather each year to pay homage to the President and First Lady for their support of scouting. All scouts are in full uniform carrying flags and/or banners.

Bring lawn chair or blanket to watch the ceremony as wreaths are placed on their graves. Please be reminded that this is a parade of respect. During the services please be respectful and attentive.
