Flag retirement ceremony reminder

North Branch Boy Scout Zakry Humble from Troop 141 would like to invite the community of North Branch to participate in a flag retirement ceremony as part of his Eagle Scout project.

“We should always show respect for our country by making sure that the flags we fly in our yards or businesses are clean and free of rips or tears to show respect for all of those who have served our country for our freedoms,” Humble said.

Bring your tattered American flags to the North Branch American Legion on Saturday, March 24 at 11 a.m. Refreshments will follow the ceremony at the Legion. Contact Zakry at humb0025@umn.edu with any questions.
