The American Flag is the proud symbol of our great nation and all the best things that it stands for. Especially since the days following September 11, 2001, our United States Of America Flag is being displayed by more and more of our citizens and, as time goes by, they become tattered, worn and can no longer be flown.
A worn American Flag must be properly and respectfully disposed of and there are specific federal laws that govern how this must be accomplished. There is a very easy way to retire your service-worn flag that costs you nothing and guarantees an honorable and respectful end result.
The Weiser Elks Lodge #1683 provides a drop-off locations for you to bring your worn, tattered, or stained flags. Flags from schools, houses of worship, and commercial sites are also welcomed. The Lodge is located at 38 W Idaho St, Weiser Idaho.
Should you wish to attend the dignified ceremony in which service-worn flags are properly retired, you are more than welcome to do so. The Elks publicly announce their Retirement Ceremony On LivingInTheNews.Com
If you have any questions regarding the Elks and their community service, or would like to become a part of the Elks, you are welcome to call them at (208) 549-9922.
