Event Details

On Veterans Day evening, a Ceremony for the Retirement of U.S. Flags will be held. The ceremony is held in Rose Hill Park and is sponsored by Post 41 and Boy Scout Troop 34.

The United States Flag Code states: “The Flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem of display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning”. This burning of the U.S. flag occurs during a formal ceremony conducted by an approved flag disposal organization such as the Boy Scouts.
