Retiring Flags

The evening event will honor our Flag in a History, respectfully retiring some Flags, with stories that make the meaning of the flag more personal and important in our lives.  These Flags have become so tattered and worn that they no longer properly represent the great sacrifices and values of the United States of America. According to the U.S. Flag Code, “the flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.”  When we refer to burning, we are remembered that they are retired and respectfully consumed by fire.

This is an event planned especially for our youth.  We welcome you as you plan your monthly activity for all Boys and Girls, Church Young Men and Young Women organizations, Sunday School groups, Scouts, Varsity Scouts, Venture Scouts, and especially Cub Scouts.  We  encourage you to wear your scout uniforms representing your organizations.
