Calhoun County Republican Women to Retire Flags

Here is some info on an important event going on tomorrow night. Don't miss and I'll see you there:

Would you like to see a proper flag retirement? Centerline of Calhoun County welcomes everyone to join in observing a formal flag retirement ceremony on Flag Day, Thursday June 14th.

Collection sites in Albion at Albion Motors, in Marshall at Darling’s Hardware and Herman’s Hardware, and in Battle Creek at M-66 Auto Body & Frame, Justice Fence and Henkel Lincoln Mercury have accumulated almost 400 flags. Collection continues Monday June 11th. Please join us in giving Old Glory the respect it deserves.

The event is open to the public and the Calhoun County Republican Women’s Association cordially invites you to attend the ceremony at 7:00 pm on Flag Day, Thursday, June 14, 2007 at Centerline of Calhoun County. Performing the honors will be Calhoun County Vietnam Veterans, as well as BSA Venture Crew 308. Colonel Tommy L. Lancaster, United States Army Chief of Staff, Defense Reutilization and Marketing Service will speak immediately following the ceremony.

Centerline is located at 23100 13 Mile Road (Old Bellevue Road). From I-94 take exit 104 – 11 Mile Road North to end, turn right on Old Bellevue Road go four miles to Centerline; from M-78 in Bellevue take Sand Road South, go three miles to Centerline; from Battle Creek take Cooper Road at Emmett Street, go eight miles to Centerline. You are welcome to bring lawn chairs for the outdoor portion of the event.

I would like to thank our collection sites. They went above and beyond. If you think about it they averaged 57 people per site coming through their door asking "where do I put my flag so it can be retired"? Thanks again

If you missed this year's retirment ceremony, don't fret. We will be collecting flags next year and holding another ceremony. So watch your e-mails & papers this time next year.
