We have often reported on the Boy Scouts of America and how good and wholesome they are for our country and the leaders that flourish from this fine organization.

At 7:30 a.m. October 8, 2o11, Indian Ridge Drive in Old River-Winfree, the Sam Houston Council of the Raven District, Pack 105 Cub Scouts, with Cub Master-Joel Clemmons and Den Leader-Kimberly Lopez will lead the 3rd Annual ORWFD 5K Run/Walk benefiting the Wounded Warrior Project in Memory of Pfc Wesley R. Riggs participants and staff in the Pledge of Allegiance to the United States Flag.

What a wonderful tribute and added honor for the Wounded Warrior Project, Pfc Wesley R. Riggs, and the runners and walkers that take time from their Saturday to run for the troops in harms way!

There will also be an Honor Flag Guard on each side of the entrance to Indian Ridge that will hold our Flag in honor of all Veterans and those still serving in the Iraq and Afghanistan Theaters of War.

Thanks so much to the Boy Scouts of America that are making this tribute to them possible!

Special thanks to Old River-Winfree resident, Kimberly Lopez for bringing this to the Scouts and getting it approved for our town and the ORWFD 5K Run/Walk!
