Sixth Annual Flag Retirement Ceremony

Nov 16, 2013 10:00 AM

The Robert V. Burns Funeral Home in conjunction with R.V. Burns Crematorium, Inc., are sponsoring their annual flag retirement ceremony on Saturday, November 16, 2013 at 10 A.M. The ceremony will take place at the Clarion Moose Lodge No. 101 of Clarion. The ceremony will be conducted by the local Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, and Girl Scouts.


The ceremony is an opportunity for the residents of Clarion and surrounding areas, to replace flags no longer fit for public display in a patriotic and highly dignified manner. The flags collected will be properly disposed of in honor of the men and women proudly serving for our nation and in memory of those who have sacrificed their lives in the protection of our local communities and nation.


This distinctive ceremony is a wonderful experience for people of all ages to attend. All are welcome. Local residents and businesses are encouraged to bring any flags, which are no longer serviceable, to the ceremony on the day of the event. For your convenience, flags can also be dropped off in advance at the following locations: Robert V.
