100th Annual Pilgrimage to the Alamo (Official Fiesta Event), hosted by the Alamo Mission Chapter of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas, honors the Heroes of the Alamo and will be on April 23, 2018. General Land Office Commissioner George P. Bush will welcome guests to The Alamo and Lt. Gen Steven Kwast, Commanding AETC, will give the keynote address.

The Boy Scouts are being invited this year in special commemoration of the role that they played in the first pilgrimage event in 1918 – the Boy Scouts had just been formed, and it was a war year, so the Boy Scouts were invited to march in the pilgrimage parade. The parade organizes in front of the Tobin Center Vietnam Memorial, and the boys and their leaders would need to be in place by 3:15 on the day of the march.  The step-off is at 4:00, and it is a silent and solemn march to Alamo Plaza.  The Scouts should bring a wreath of flowers to be laid on the green of the Alamo, and they are also welcome to bring a banner to carry in front of them.  As many Boy Scouts and Venturers are invited to participate in the march.

For more information or to participate, Unit leaders should contact Event Chair, Sharon Skrobarcek at 210-865-7064 or Eileen Sommer at rsommer@kingsommer.com
