Countywide Flag Retirement Ceremony Tonight, 6 P.M. In Dorchester
Flag Day is today, June 14. Make sure you take a moment to appreciate that you live in the world's greatest country -- and think about the sacrifice, promise and ideals represented by the American flag. (Then reflect if you're helping to contribute to those ideals.)
To mark this special day, the Dorchester American Legion, Post 264, will hold its annual Saline County flag retirement ceremony tonight, Wednesday evening.
The ceremony will begin at 6 p.m., with a covered dish dinner following the services.
All area residents are welcome and encouraged to attend this very patriotic event.
Plan on coming early and bring your unserviceable American flags.
Hundreds of flags are expected to be retired.
For more information, call Larry Kaspar at (402) 946-6711 or Rich Kasl (402) 946-7651.
In the meantime, please carefully read this poem.
