US Flag Retiring Ceremony

July 20 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Saturday July 20, beginning at 10:30 AM the Lodge is going to hold an open to the public flag retirement.

Bring your tired and worn out flags to the Lodge that morning. The event will be held out of doors in side yard, although
we will move indoors if the weather is bad enough.

The agenda for the day is:
10:30 am Elks Flag Retirement Ceremony
11:00 am Lower the Flag from the Elks flag pole, and raise a new flag. This will be accompanied by PER Tim Grabin who will be playing Taps and To the Colors on his bugle.
11:30 until finished Flag preparation and ceremonial destruction.
Those who brought flags will be able to participate in this process.

There will be food and beverages available for purchase.
We are asking for a donation, suggested at $5.00 per flag. The donations and a portion of the food sales will go to support
the “Parents of Military, Fremont County” who use the funds to send packages to deployed military personal at Christmas
time. Of course, this is optional and any amount, or nothing is welcome. So don’t let the donation stop you from bringing
in your flag.

Come down and join in is this Patriotic duty to honor our nations flag!
