Flag Retirement Ceremony
June 13, 2020 @ 9:00 am
Saturday, June 13th, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. at Roselawn Memorial Park
According to the United States Flag Code: “The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.”
During this ceremony—adhering to the policy of respectful treatment of our national symbol—flags will be ceremoniously burned, deposited into an outer burial container, and buried with full honors by the American Legion and Roselawn Memorial Park staff. This meaningful ceremony is free and open to the public.
