U.S. flags will be honorably retired at a ceremony at the Mandarin Community Club on Sunday, Feb. 9 at 3 p.m. The club has been collecting worn, faded, used or damaged flags throughout the year for proper and honorable disposal at this flag retirement event. The club has been partnering with SAR (Sons of the American Revolution) for multiple years to hold this ceremony as a valuable service to members and the community.

This is a moving and educational experience for all who attend as they witness an American flag deconstructed, while the history and meaning of each component is explained.

“In addition to those who have brought their flags to the club or any of our events, we would also like to thank Thompson Ace Hardware for their role in collecting worn, used or faded flags,” said Susie Scott, president of the Mandarin Community Club.

Flags that are in poor condition should not be displayed and this ceremony provides a means to see that they are retired with respect and honor. Flags that are faded or have holes should be turned in for proper management of disposal; a collection box will be located outside the club at 12447 Mandarin Road from 7 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Feb. 9 prior to the ceremony for those who would like their flag retired, but are unable to attend the ceremony that afternoon.

The public is welcome and encouraged to attend this highly symbolic ceremony. Visit mandarincommunityclub.org or call the club at (904) 268-1622 for more information.
