Cherokee County Fire Explorers Post #469 presented the colors prior to the Atlanta Braves and New York Mets baseball game this past Saturday night at Suntrust Park in Cobb County.
Sgt. Michael Sims, an advisor for the local explorers group, said, “Our explorers joined Boy Scout Troop 304 in leading a parade around the field before the game. After the parade, the Cherokee County Fire Explorers had the honor of presenting our nation’s colors on the field in front of the players and thousands of fans.”
Cadet Fire Lieutenant, Denver Ice, carried the American flag and was accompanied by Cadet Captain, Dalton Hamby, Cadet Firefighter, Fabian Frazzari, Cadet Firefighter, Griffin Hansen, and Cadet Firefighter, Jared MacCracken, along with members of Boy Scout Troop 304.
The explorer program is part of the Learning for Life Division of the Boy Scout of America. “Saturday night was “Scout Night at the Braves” and Post 469 enjoyed this honor of representing scouts and explorers from the Atlanta area,” added Sims.
