American Legion collecting unserviceable flags for disposal

Special to The SUN

On June 14, we celebrated Flag Day.

This day provided us with the opportunity to fly our flags and to replace any that were so faded, worn or frayed as to no longer be respectful of what they represent.

Once again, American Legion Mullins-Nickerson Post 108 is collecting unserviceable American and Colorado flags for proper retirement and disposal.

Flags in unserviceable condition should be disposed of with dignity. The American Legion provides this service, and worn flags may be turned in to any Legionnaire, left at the Archuleta County Sheriff’s Office in the courthouse or at Vega Insurance and Financial Services office at 818 Rosita St. (across the highway from the Ruby Sisson Library).
