Flag Retiring Ceremony at Veterans Park
Posted Date: 5/4/2012

Poway, CA - The City of Poway Veterans Park Committee, in conjunction with the Poway VFW Post 7907, will conduct a formal U.S. Flag Retirement Ceremony on June 9, 2012, at 10:00 a.m. at the Veterans Park, 14135 Midland Road, Poway, CA 92064.

Although military organizations have been conducting flag retiring ceremonies for years, this is an opportunity for the community, adults and children alike, to experience the proper way to retire a U.S. flag.

The ceremony will be performed with support from Poway Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, and the Westview High School ROTC. Only one flag will be retired during the ceremony; however, attendees may bring faded or tattered flags prior to the ceremony. These flags will be retired and interned at the Poway VFW Post 7907.
