American Flag Disposal Box at Town Hall

As we all know, the American Flag has a long history. Our Veterans have risked their lives and/or given up comfortable lifestyles while defending and honoring our nations most iconic symbol of freedom.

When it comes time to replace a worn/tattered flag, proper etiquette is paramount. Fold the flag correctly by ending with a triangle of blue with white stars. Folding the flag properly shows our level of respect and dedication.

Once you have done this, it is often then taken to a location that properly retires/disposes of the flag in a ceremonial fashion. American Legion, VFW and government offices have disposal boxes. Stillwater now has a disposal box at the Town Hall!

Special thanks to Jon Franco for creating our first box and donating his time and material. These flags will be properly delivered to our local VFW for disposal.
