Spanish Fork Flag Retirement Ceremony

*CLICK ON STORY FOR VIDEO* Spanish Fork residents filled the fairgrounds arena as Boy and Girl Scouts delivered flags to members of our Military that placed them in a fire and gave them a final salute.

When an American flag becomes worn, faded, torn or soiled, it should be retired and replaced with a new flag. There are several ways to respectfully dispose of the American flag without showing disgrace. The most common method is burning the torn or tattered flag in a special ceremony.

Thank you so much for this great patriotic learning opportunity in our community. We were proud to see many Park Panthers participate.
