Girls from Clay and Vigo counties took part in Girl Scout Camp this week at the Indiana State University Field Campus.
On Thursday, they learned correct American Flag etiquette from members of V.F.W. Post No. 1127.
Post Commander Bob Bigley explained how three members conduct a fold in addition to the meaning of each fold for the American Flag.
Bigley also read a poem describing the meaning of the American Flag. The poem had no author attached to it.
"This is your flag," Bigley told the girls. "It belongs to everyone. We are the flag. The flag is a symbol of what we stand for: Freedom. We are freedom."
The girls also had the opportunity to learn how to fold the American Flag as V.F.W. representatives brought three flags to use.
Following the lesson on the American Flag, each girl was given a balloon for a launch in honor of 100 years of Girl Scouts.
Each balloon was signed with a Girl Scout Council address and a name of a member, with the hope the council would receive the balloons in the future to see how far they traveled.
The girls were expected to spend the night at the facility Thursday. Camp ended Friday.
