6_22_13080Combined with the dignity and solemnity required by the flag code to respectfully dispose of worn American flags the officers and members of J. B. Covert Lodge will partner with a local Boy Scout Troop and accept flags from around the community for this unique event. Through the course of a short ceremony the flags are dutifully retired under the watchful eye of the Scouts.

The event also includes a brief historical perspective on the nature of the ceremony and the indissoluble linkage between these two organizations.

The event is open to the public and includes a lunch.

The 2017 event will be held on June 10th, 2017 and will begin at 10:30 AM on the steps of J. B. Covert Masonic Temple located at 848 Clough Pike in Union Township, Ohio.

For questions please contact Event Chair Dave Olmstead
