Flag Retirement Ceremony 9/10/2011

Scouter and Scout Community,
Sorry this is short notice. We have had a great group of volunteers working on getting this together.
On Saturday September 10th a Flag Retirement Ceremony has been planned to be held in the parking lot of Nuts and Bolts Hardware (2320 S Collins St in Arlington). We are asking if any Boy Scout, Venture, and Adults that could help arrive no later then 10:30am in uniform and bring scissors to help in the ceremony.
Cub Scouts, Parents, and Community are welcome to attend the Ceremony that will start at 11:00am. The plan is to retire flags for an hour and to be done by noon.
Back ground information on the collection of Flags-
There seems to be fewer flags flying these days, and many of those that still fly show signs of wear and tear.
As we approach Sunday's commemoration of the 9-11 attacks on America, 98.7 KLUV encourages you to replace your worn, torn or tattered flag and fly a bright, fresh flag on this most important of anniversaries.
We've teamed with Elliott's Hardware, Mr. C's Ace Hardware and Nuts 'n Bolts Hardware to make three-by-five, American-made, American flags available for just $5…but only through this Sunday, 9-11.
Just bring your old flag to one of the locations listed below and you can get a new flag for Just $5 (including pole and mounting bracket).
$5 is the price…but if you pay $6 (or more!), the extra funds will be donated to the USO at DFW Airport!
Whether you decide to buy a flag or not, you can bring in an old flag and we will see that it receives a respectful and proper retirement.
