Flags to be retired on Friday

Posted

American Legion Post 26 will host a flag retirement ceremony at 6 p.m. Friday. The ceremony offers a way to properly dispose of flags that are worn out, with Legion members burning them.

“Our community is one that flies our American flag proudly,” said Russ Stafford, commander of the Legion post. “As we fly those flags, they become worn and torn and need to be retired.”

The ceremony will be held in the back parking lot of the Legion post, which is located at 143 S. Clark St. A barbecue will immediately follow the ceremony, with donations welcomed.
