Flag retirement ceremony taking place during upcoming Heritage Festival

A flag retirement ceremony will take place on Saturday, Sept. 15, at 4 p.m. at the annual PA Heritage Festival, held at Alparon Park in Troy. 

The Canton VFW will be performing the ceremony on the infield close to the Civil War re-enactors. They are looking for flags that are worn out and need to be retired in the appropriate manner. 

Flags can also be dropped off at the museum during business hours. 

According to the United States Flag Code, “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, preferably by burning.”
