Boy Scout Troop 88 will conduct a flag retirement ceremony at Stearns Homestead on Saturday, June 15, 2019 beginning at 2:30 pm.  All are welcome to attend.  It is suggested that you bring a chair.

Area scouts/ troops are encouraged to attend and participate.

If you have a worn, torn American flag that is beyond repair, bring it with you or drop off in our flag bin located on the Gibbs screened porch by June 15.

The ceremony will be conducted as referenced in the BSA Handbook – “A national flag that is worn beyond repair may be burned in a fire. The ceremony should be conducted with dignity and respect and the flag burned completely to ashes.”
