Bring old and tattered flags for proper disposal
If you have a tattered and weather worn flag that needs to be replaced, you should dispose of it in the proper, respectful manner. To casually throw an old flag into the trash, or to burn it unceremoniously does a disservice to the thousands of brave Americans that have died while defending its honor.
If you want to dispose of this national symbol in the proper manner, you should bring the flag to Graceville at 5:30 PM at the Bay Line Park near the Express Lane on Peanut Road. The American Legion Post #42 of Graceville will hold a flag destruction ceremony at this site on a very fitting date…..9-11.
