FLAG PROJECT NEWS

 

This year we found out by accident the Summit County Sheriff's Department would  no longer be doing the Flag Retirement Ceremony!

 

So what do you do with 4000 + Flags?

You go to the Boy Scouts for help!!!

 

Many thanks to Ruth Munday, Director of the scouts for a multi-county area!

Because of her help and support, we were able to take 4619 flags to Camp Butler in Northen Summit County and give them to the Scouts for retirement.  They will be used throughout the year to train all the Scouts that come in from all over in the proper procedure for retiring flags, a win - win situation!!!

 

We will also be taking flags to them at various times of the year instead of having to store them all year.

 

Below are pictures from our flag run on a rainy day (of course).
