Veteran organizations to host flag retirement ceremony in Algonquin Township

Cary-Grove AMVETS Pearl Harbor Memorial Post 245 and Fox River Grove American Legion Post 119 provide refurbished mail drop boxes for those wishing to properly dispose of American flags that no longer are fit for flying.

The retired flag drop boxes are located in front of the water rescue station across the street from Village Hall,
400 Lucille Ave., in Fox River Grove and at the Algonquin Township offices,
3702 Route 14, Crystal Lake.

Veteran organizations will host a flag retirement ceremony at 5 p.m. Thursday, which is Flag Day, behind the Algonquin Township offices.

Boy Scout Troop 161 of Oakwood Hills will help sort the flags. All are invited to attend.
