The Lynden VFW will be handing out stick flags at noon on Flag day June 14 at the Veterans Memorial Park on 4th & Grover. Please remember to drop off your torn or faded U.S. flag at VFW Post 9301, 7011 Hannegan Rd Lynden, there is a special container located on the east side of building marked "Flag Disposal" Made by Eagle Scout Jake Nevins. For inquiries or assistance with your flag call/text 360-220-5676
To assist in displaying our nation’s symbol, I would like to share a few guidelines:
● A flag displayed on a car should be fastened to the right side bumper, antenna or to the window.
● If displaying a flag on a wall, the blue field should be in the upper left corner and it should never touch the ground.
● When displaying an all-weather flag outdoors, 24 hours a day, there should be a light near it at night so it is not in complete darkness.
● Above all, when the flag becomes worn, please replace it. For additional flag etiquette information, visit the VFW website at http://www.vfw.org/Flag/
Remember Old Glory has been flying for more than 240 years and will be flying for many, many years in the future. Thank you for showing your patriotic pride.
God Bless America!
