When the United States flag (Old Glory) becomes worn, torn, faded or badly soiled, it is time to replace it with a new flag, and the old flag should be “retired” with all the dignity and respect befitting our nation’s flag. The traditional method of retirement is to incinerate the flag. The American Legion is hosting the Retirement Ceremony at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 14 behind the Legion. Everyone is invited to come to the ceremony, all military veterans, families and children, young and old alike.
Every Day but especially on Flag Day, everyone, personal homes and businesses throughout the country are encouraged to fly our Flag. Let’s all show our support for our freedom, country and flag, especially this year as we are experiencing very stressful times and turmoil. Pray for our country and troops. The American Legion Post 130 is located at 699 SR80 West, across from the Shell station. The public is welcome.
