Letter: Flag Retirement Ceremony

By on June 14, 2012

On Flag Day, Thursday, June 14, at 7 p.m, the Officers of the American Legion Auxiliary and Sons of the American Legion will have a Flag Retirement Ceremony.

The public is welcome to attend and are welcome to bring any worn, tattered or otherwise unusable flag for retirement.

We take great pride in the flag of our country and perform this ceremony in accordance with Legion directives to ensure proper retirement etiquette. Flags are collected throughout the year, both at the American Legion Post and at Village Hall, and are retired every year on Flag Day.
