Forest Grove American Legion collects worn flags for disposal
The American Legion of Forest Grove holds a Flag Disposal Ceremony once a year, usually in September for community members who have worn flags to dispose of.
Although this years date has not yet been set, old, tattered, faded, worn or otherwise unusable U.S. flags may be left at the Legion building anytime. There is a slot in the wall by the front door where the flags may be left.
The American Legion building is located at 2003 21st Ave., Forest Grove.
The flags will be disposed of in proper fashion with the help of local youth groups and in accordance with the national flag code.
