Do you have a well worn American flag that has fully served its patriotic purpose and now needs an honorable and respectful retirement? This Friday, June 13 at noon, the City of Indian Rocks Beach holds its annual Flag Retirement Ceremony at Chic-A-See Park next to the IRB Historical Museum on 4th Avenue.
Bring your flags to Indian Rocks Beach City Hall on Bay Palm Boulevard and they will be laid to rest with dignity during the ceremony. Stay after for a complimentary lunch which follows the flag retirement program.
