With Independence Day just days away, everyone should know there will be an event hosted by the youth of Christian County. The Cub Scouts in Packs 68 and 132, will be retiring worn and tattered American Flags at the Lake Taylorville Marina. Pack 68 Den Leader, David Crouch said that a flag should be retired when it's no longer dignified for use and should be burned in honor of all of those who have fought and fallen in battle.
Crouch said flags can be given to the cub scout packs during the 4th of July Parade by handing them your flag as they pass by.
For any questions about the flag retirement ceremony, or to have Crouch pick it up call him at 217-823-6858. Crouch recently appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
