Veteran’s Day Flag Retirement Ceremony

The Moose Lodge is sponsoring a Flag retirement ceremony on Veteran’s Day (November 11, 2016).  All units are welcome and encouraged to attend.  We would appreciate an approximate head count as we get closer to the event.  There is no cost, as it is a community service event, open to the Scouts.  You do not have to arrive at 10 AM to come, but can come any time during the ceremony.  There are no other activities planned besides the retirement of flags.
