WHAT TO DO WITH A WORN AMERICAN FLAG
We all know that an American flag should be retired with dignity, but what should we do with one that has been tattered by the wind over time.  Many of us know not to dispose of worn flags in the trash, so let them reside in the garage with intentions to ‘properly’ handle them later. Boy Scout Troop 111 has relocated their flag collection container to the Delta Township Recycling Center to provide a solution for you and handle proper retirement of all American flags.

The kiosk was originally constructed as part of Leonard Robitaille’s Eagle Project several years ago.  Leonard, though autistic, put a lot of work into its construction with the help of many scouts and adults from his Troop.  Congressman Mike Rogers and other dignitaries participated in the original dedication at the car wash on Elmwood. It has been at several Delta Township locations, but now resides in a logical location with access to all.

All you have to do is drop the flag in the slot on the side, and the Scouts from Troop 111 will ensure it is included in one of their formal flag retirement ceremonies.  Many of the flags are retired during their week as the Governor’s Honor Guard each summer at Mackinac Island.  Their most recent ceremony was held on Veteran’s Day with over 100 flags retired with proper dignity.

Troop 111 has served the Delta/Waverly area for over 50 years and meets Monday evenings at 6:30 at First United Methodist Church if you are interested in more information.
