Turn it in to veterans, that's how! The McPherson Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) and the American Legion will hold an official Flag Retirement Ceremony Saturday, June 11, at 9:00 am in the VFW parking lot, 120 S. Taft, McPherson (weather permitting). 

Anyone with old or damaged flags of any kind can drop them off at the American Legion prior to the ceremony or simply bring them to the ceremony Saturday morning. 

A “Flag Drop Box” is also located just south of the Legion building, 401 N. Main St. in McPherson.
