Torn, tattered flags to be disposed

Torn, tattered flags to be disposed

There is a proper way to dispose of old American flags. If you have an American flag that is old, torn, tattered, soiled, faded, or not usable in any way, deposit it at the Golden Meadow, Galliano or Cut Off Post Offices.

The Golden Meadow American Legion Post 259 will collect them, and on the evening of June 14 at 5 p.m. at the Oakridge Park in Golden Meadow, will hold a ceremony to retire them with the respect that they deserve.

The public is also invited to attend this most solemn ceremony. Any questions, please call Donald Callais at 475-5583.
