Local Eagle Scout Project – Flag Retirement at Potosi Elks #2218

November 10, 2022

The local Scouts will host a Flag Retirement Ceremony at the Potosi Elks Lodge #2218 on Saturday, Nov. 12th, 2022 at 4 p.m.

The retirement will be set up outside at the South edge of the Elks parking lot. Any interested in learning more about the United States of America Flag and its history is welcome.

Also, any flags that need to be retired are being accepted to be included in the retirement ceremony.

Local Scout Ethan Foster has set up the retirement as part of his Eagle Scout Project that he is working to complete by next Spring.

The retirement ceremony is an impressive act that honors the Red, White & Blue and shares some of the history of the nation’s flag.

All Veterans are invited to attend and more than welcome to participate in the ceremony.

Refreshments will be available, provided by the Potosi Elks Lodge #2218. The Elks Lodge is located at ‘the top of the hill’ on North Missouri Street or off Hwy. 21 at Hwy. E West.
