FLAG RETIREMENT CEREMONY - JULY 3RD

Posted: 07.2.2015

Any worn out or damaged American flag needs to be retired respectfully - this retirement is part of a ceremony that includes destruction by fire. Veterans groups and various Boy Scout troops typically provide this service.

One such ceremony will be conducted Friday, July 3rd, at 6 p.m. and will be held at the corner of Moore and Howe Streets in Southport. As part of the ceremony, retired Lt. Col. Bill Morgan from the American Legion Post 543 will explain the flag's importance to the men and women who have served our great nation.

If you have a worn flag, you may leave it at anytime during the year at the Southport-Oak Island Area Chamber of Commerce for proper disposal.
