On Behalf of the Scoutmasters, the Committee and the Scouts,
You are invited to attend our Fourth Annual Flag Retirement ceremony. It will be held today, August 24, at 1:30 p.m. at the Donegal School House. Any flag which has been used outdoors in local cemeteries (which the troop has collected) will be added to any flags provided to us prior to Monday, August 18. The scouts prepare the flags by separating stripes from the blue field as tradition requires. You may wish to bring a folding chair. Refreshments will be provided.
If you have never attended a flag retirement, in a reverent way, scouts drop prepared flags into a fire while patriotic poems and stories are read. A scout will play taps on the bugle. Later the troop will hold a Court of Honor where the latest awards and advancements will be given.
If you have any questions or wish to retire a flag, please call me at (717) 615-2294.
Sincerely, Philip Landis,
