Relocation of Retired Flag Receptacle

Due to construction work on the old Seven Lakes Hardware (soon to be Ace Hardware), the receptacle for retired flags has been relocated and is now at the Sandhills Winery (just north of Food Lion).

“Leslie and Bob Rose have been nice enough to allow us to relocate it in front of their store from the old hardware on Hwy 211,” explained Larry McCallum of the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 966.

This location is where “retired US flags” (flags that are soiled or damaged) may be dropped off.

“Old and worn-out flags are collected and will be disposed of with appropriate ceremony periodically,” Tom Kimball of Chapter 966 said.
