Mackinac Island Boy Scouts
Did you know that in the summer the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts serve Michigan as the Mackinac Island Governor's Honor Guard? We were so delighted to watch them march up to the entrance of Fort Mackinac and perform the raising of the flags. Back in 1929, former president Gerald Ford was among the first Eagle Scouts to serve in this honor guard. They live in the barracks close to the fort. May you have a blessed Fourth of July!
