Flag Retirement Party

The Scouts (Cub and Boy) had a flag retirement ceremony at the Nile Country Club and VFW Posts 8870, 1040, and American Legion Posts 66 with two other Posts had a picnic for the Scouts. Unfortunately, most of the Scouts were on an outing so members of 8870 and 66 outnumbered everyone else. However, the food was good, the weather was nice, and we all had a good time. Trustee Les Abel is going to approach the new Fire Marshall in Edmonds and seek permission to have the flag retirement ceremony conducted in Edmonds were it was held for a number of years before the previous Fire Marshall decided, for unknown reasons, to ban the burning of flags in the City park.
