Creston School to honor the flag

Posted: Thursday, Oct 17th, 2013

CRESTON – Once a United States flag becomes worn, torn, or faded it is time to replace the old flag with a new Old Glory.

Creston School and the VFW are teaming up to teach students the proper way to retire a flag with the dignity and respect befitting our nation’s flag.

On Monday, Oct. 21 Creston Elementary Students will hold a flag retirement ceremony at 9:30 a.m. at Creston Booster Park.

“The VFW showed student council how to properly fold a flag and that peaked the students interest in the American flag and proper etiquette,” explained parent teacher organization president Cara Tracey.
