the entrance to the American Legion. All flags deposited in the designated white
box are disposed of by Legion members in the respectful and proper manner.
That ceremony, Retirement of Old Colors, will be held on Flag Day, Friday, June 14th,
at noon. An honor guard will participate and the traditional 21-gun salute will
be offered. The flags will be burned to complete the Retirement of Old Colors.
The annual Flag Day ceremony is held at the north end of the library property and
begins at Noon, sharp. If you wish to have your flag included in the ceremony, simply
deposit it in the white collection box. Everyone is welcome to attend the ceremony
and show respect to our country’s emblem and the veterans who have served in support
of the Red, White and Blue.
