Director of Veterans’ Services Kevin Jarvis announced that there will be a Flag Retirement Ceremony on Saturday, June 11, 2022 from 10 AM-12 PM at the Forest Dale Cemetery, 150 Forest Street, Malden, MA 02148. Legion members, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Veterans, students and volunteers are asked to arrive at 10 AM to prepare the flags for the retirement ceremony.
Many volunteers placed flags on Veterans’ graves in the City cemeteries in preparation for Memorial Day. During this time they also collected thousands of old and unserviceable flags. The flags are retired in a traditional ceremony held by the American Legion along with the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts every year which promotes the proper respect for our United States flags by honorably disposing of old, worn and unserviceable flags.
To participate in the Flag Retirement Ceremony on June 11, 2022 please contact Kevin Jarvis 781-397-7139.
