Braham Girl Scouts to host Flag Retirement Ceremony

Braham Area Girl Scouts will be hosting a Flag Retirement Ceremony on Sunday, Nov. 11, at 7 p.m. in Freedom Park in Braham.

All are invited to attend. If you have flags that need to be retired, bring them with you or you may drop them off at Braham City Hall.

A flag is never said to be burned—it is retired. 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.
