In keeping with the wishes of the late Leonard S. Michalowski, Falls Church Boy Scout Troop 895 has adopted Veterans Commons, located on the Washington and Old Dominion Trail at the junction of Little Falls Street, and has been working to maintain the grounds preserving “Veterans Commons” as a place of beauty that all may enjoy. In addition, the Troop intends to resume the traditions established by Mr. Michalowski by holding early morning flag ceremonies at the site on Mem
orial Day and Veteran’s Day.
Boys Scouts of Troop 895 completed a 50 mile bike ride as part of their Cycling Merit badge requirements on Sunday May 27th. To get ahead of the predicted high temperatures, they left early from Falls Church, Mile Marker 7 on the W & OD Bike trail, and rode out to the 32 mile mark and back to complete a full 50 miles.
