I Am Your Flag
When the United States flag (Old Glory) becomes worn, torn, faded or badly soiled, it is time to replace it with a new flag. The old flag should be “retired” with dignity and respect befitting our nation’s flag.
All girls are invited to come as a troop. To take part in training of proper flag retirement ceremony. As part of their take action, Girls will need conduct this ceremony in their community. There are two methods of retirement, burial or flame. Burning the flag does not mean that one should simply drop the entire flag (intact) into a fire. Tonight, we are not burning a flag, we are retiring a symbol of America’s honor, courage and strength. Therefore we request that all remain silent during this ceremony.
Please note: You are welcome to bring your own flag to retire. Light snacks, gloves and sash are provided.
This is a members only event.
Chaperones are required to register.
