When the United States Flag becomes worn, torn, faded or badly soiled, it should be "retired" with all the dignity and respect befitting our nation's symbol of freedom.

Is your American Flag torn, worn or sun-faded? It is time to retire it properly.

Please drop off any flags that need to be retired at Books and Crannies, 209 W. Moore Avenue, Sat 10 to 5. Deadline is Wednesday, July 3rd at 2pm. Or you may bring your flag to the retirement event.
