CFD PROVIDES "WORN FLAG" DEPOSIT BOX
As residents in the area get ready to proudly display their flags for Veterans Day, some may wonder what to do with flags that are too tattered or torn to fly.  The Clinton Fire Dept and American Legion Post 172 have teamed up to provide one solution for you. 

The U.S. Flag Code (Title 4, Chapter 1, paragraph 8-K) states that; The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.

A worn flag deposit box has been built and installed at Clinton Fire Dept., Station 1. (located at 100 Longmire Rd, across the street from Big-Lots)  Anyone who has flags that need to be retired may place them in the box at any time.  Flags deposited here will be given to the American Legion and properly retired in a dignified way.
