What better way to spend part of Memorial Day than to honor our country and troops by properly retiring American flags, many in dedication of a loved one who served in the military. That’s exactly what the Somerset community decided to do when they organized a flag retirement ceremony that was held on May 26 in the private park at the end of Culbreath Road.
Flags for retirement were inspected and certified as ready for retirement and then placed on a rod and into the fire. Over 100 additional flags were retired including about 15 from Terry Ward and Mike Rollman. A number of flags were obtained from ACE Hardware, which collects worn flags for retirement.
