Eagle Scout candidate Scott Bellot will be conducting a Flag Retirement Ceremony on Saturday May 3rd at 2:00PM at VFW Post 4515 located at 148 Veterans Drive (McCloy Park) in Monticello, AR.
Chapter one, section eight, item k, of the United States flag code states: "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, preferable by burning."
If you have any old, heavily worn, or damaged flags that you would like to have properly honored and retired, you may drop them off at Bone’s Auto Parts, 726 HWY 278 W or the VFW Building, 148 Veterans Drive in Monticello, AR.
The Ceremony is open to the public and interested parties are invited to attend.
