The So­cial Cir­cle Amer­i­can Legion Post 332 con­ducted a flag re­tire­ment cer­e­mony at the Mews Cen­ter Satur­day morn­ing to co­in­cide with Na­tional Flag Day.

Sec­tion 8(k) of the U.S. Flag Code spec­i­fies that when a flag is no longer fit for dis­play it should be de­stroyed in a dig­ni­fied way, which is usu­ally by burn­ing.

Amer­i­can Legion mem­bers and So­cial Cir­cle res­i­dents gath­ered as flags were re­tired into a fire by Post 332 Com­man­der Wayne Har­ring­ton, Rev. Paul Best, Ken Kitchens and Win­fred Pow­ell.
