Boy Scout Troop 204 is the only troop in the Verdugo Hills Council that performs the Historic Flag Ceremony at patriotic events in the community. Members display five designs of the American flag that mark historic times in our country’s past. Troop 204 is made up of boys who live in Burbank and Glendale and is part of the Verdugo Hills Council Boy Scouts of America. The troop, which is sponsored by the Burbank Noon Kiwanis Club, has conducted the ceremony for events like the Noon Kiwanis’ Pause for the Pledge, an event that pays tribute to the Pledge of Allegiance on Flag Day, June 14. The Historic Flag Ceremony was created in 1971 by Burbank resident Sam Engel Sr., a member of the Boy Scouts for 67 years and former scoutmaster of Troop 204. A World War II veteran, Engel wrote the script for a ceremony to dedicate a new flag the troop purchased after two others were taken from an equipment room, one flag in 1969 and another in 1970, he said.
