Boy Scouts to Collect American Flags on Election Day For Retirement Ceremony

The Boy Scouts will have a collection box on election day at the Life Safety Building for American flags ready for retirement. They will be retired at a later date by the Scouts in a formal ceremony. If you have flags ready for retirement, you are encouraged to drop them off on Tuesday when you come out to vote.

Thanks for the notice regarding flag collection. The flag retirement ceremony will take place on Friday, Veterans Day, at 10am at the Lions Club. Veterans are invited as guests of Troop 142 for a pancake breakfast preceding the ceremony between 8am and 9:30am; and the public is invited to join us with kind donations helping to offset costs for the breakfast.
