Knights of Columbus Are Collecting Discarded Flags
The Knights of Columbus are collecting unserviceable and discarded flags from Memorial Day through the Fourth of July.
Look for red, white and blue drop boxes in the church. These are for flags only; please dispose of your flag staff or pole separately.
A drop box also will be available at the Knights’ new Wexford Council home in the Wexford Professional Office Building No. II, 11676 Perry Highway, Suite 2308, Wexford.
Your participation in this project is a way for all of us to respectfully dispose of our withered flags.
A Flag Retirement Ceremony is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Wednesday, July 26, in front of the Wexford Fire Hall at 228 North Chapel Drive, Wexford.
The Knights are collaborating with the local American Legion, Boy Scouts, and Wexford Volunteer Fire Co. to handle the proper disposal. The K of C Color Corps and Boy Scout Honor Guard will participate in the Flag Retirement Ceremony.
