Paying tribute to ‘Old Glory’

Posted: Tuesday, Jun 18th, 2013

American Legion Post 59 burned more than 350 U.S. flags during its annual flag retirement ceremony on Flag Day, June 14, across from the Veteran’s Memorial Park on Bay Street. Siuslaw Valley Fire and Rescue personnel helped control the fires, and members of the local Boy Scouts also participated in the burning ceremony, which allows proper retirement for tattered and worn flags.
