Girl Scouts to hold flag retirement event

Disposing of a flag that is worn, faded or tattered by retiring (burning) it is the only method approved by Congress. The retirement should take place at a ceremony, which shows respect and honor to the flag or flags being retired.

Braham Area Girl Scouts will be hosting a flag retirement ceremony Nov. 11 in Freedom Park in Braham at 7 p.m. All are invited to attend; those who have flags that need to be retired can bring or drop them off at Braham City Hall.
