Legion collecting worn flags

May 01, 2006

Spring has arrived and yard cleaning has begun, and it is an ideal time to replace tattered, torn and worn American flags.

The American Legion Auxiliary, Antietam Unit 236, has placed a collection barrel in front of Sharpsburg Town Hall, where residents may place their worn American flags for proper disposal by unit members.

Antietam Unit 236 reminds all patriotic Americans to display an American flag in good condition for upcoming patriotic holidays: Armed Forces Day (May 20); Memorial Day (May 29); Independence Day (July 4); Flag Day (June 14); Labor Day (Sept. 4); Patriot Day (Sept. 11); and POW/MIA Recognition Day (Sept. 15).
