From Ron Handel

-Retired Army

“It has come to my attention and others that flags are being flown in the area that are in poor shape. The 4th of July is a wonderful time to display and fly the flag of the great country of the United States.  Stand up Weiser; she’s a grand “Ole” Flag, one I love.”

The United States Flag Cod e, Title 4, Section 8K states- “The Flag when it is in such a condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem of display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.”

If you would like to retire your flag there are two organizations in Weiser that you may contact to do so properly.


Bob Barber- Boy Scout Troop 350 sponsored by the Lions Club – (208) 869-6890 or Alex Chavarria- Weiser American Legion – (208) 602-7138

You can find new flags to fly in some of our local businesses in town.
