Benny Benson & the City Cemetery

Brownie Troop #118 learning about Alaska history (including our flag!) together with the "Alaska Try It" badge today. 

We walked from the library to the city cemetery by the hospital and learned a little bit more about the people who came before us here in Kodiak. The girls each had a flower to leave on grave of their choice. We found Benny Benson's grave and spent time reading the plaque on his grave. Several of the girls left their flowers on his grave. 

I'm thankful for an afternoon full of thoughtful questions and thoughts from the Brownies, and their families which came along on this outing.
