Lufkin (VFW) Memorial Post 1836 is planning a community U.S. Flag retirement ceremony, and now is your opportunity to retire that old flag the right way.

Bring your old, tattered, and torn United States flags to Lufkin VFW Post 1836 located at 1800 Ford Chapel Rd.

They are collecting old flags, and will conduct a proper community flag burning ceremony in the near future.

A barrel is located near the front of the VFW for you to place your retired flag in. They will treat all the retired flags with the utmost respect.

Currently, this is just in the collection phase of the operation and they do not have a time and place for the retirement ceremony to take place, but that information will be given to the public as soon as it's planned.
