Town of Wappinger and the Wappinger Veterans Advisory will be hosting a FLAG RETIREMENT CEREMONY at Brexel-Schlathaus Park on Flag Day (tomorrow) at 5pm.
Professionals and Veterans will be on-site to ensure that it is a respectful ceremony to retire the flags by burning. Unfortunately, DACRON, RAYON, and NYLON flags cannot be retired at this time. COTTON flags will be retired by burning at the ceremony.
All others will be collected separately and be respectfully retired at the Dutchess County Resource Recovery Facility.
Flags from the Official Wappinger Town American Flag Repository will be retired in addition to any other residents’ flags that are donated during the ceremony.
