There will be a re-dedication of the Clayton Playground on Thursday, June 12. Please help support the town. If available, the Color Guard will meet at the park at 1PM to be there for ceremony.
Flag Day is Saturday June 14, we will be at the Clayton Fire hall on Graves St. to retire the flags that have been brought in for a proper disposal. If there are any tattered or worn flags please respect it and retire them then replace it with a new one.
“The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.”
The Flag Code does not actually give specifics on how to destroy the flag. One should use common sense making sure the procedure is in good taste and shows no disrespect for the flag. Many of the following organizations have collections in your local community to collect and perform a flag burning ceremony: American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Boy Scouts of America, Girl Scouts of America, Mayor, City Hall or other patriotic organizations.”
Friday June 13 Flag Day will be recognized at TI School. Color Guard are asked to attend if available. Meet at the Legion at 1230
