Several flags retired in Ironton ceremony
IRONTON, Ohio — Arrick’s Propane, in partnership with the Veterans of Foreign Wars and local Boy Scout Troop 106, hosted an American flag retirement ceremony Monday morning in Ironton, Ohio.
“I think it went tremendously. We had an absolutely beautiful day for it and several dignitaries around from around the area were able to come join us for the ceremony,” Arrick’s Ironton Branch Manager Nathan Davis said.
Just one flag was retired in Monday’s ceremony due to time constraints, but Davis said enough flags to fill a pair of 30-gallon trash bags were given up for retirement by people in the community, which prompted the company to introduce a new American flag disposal box that will be available for residents to bring their American flags that are ready to be retired.
