Flag retirement

The Abingdon Ruritan Club held a flag retirement ceremony Memorial Day weekend. The service included the Pledge of Allegiance followed by individual placement of the flags in the fire pit one at a time. A total of 44 flags were retired and the group ended the ceremony by reciting the Pledge again. The Ruritans encourage anyone to drop off a flag in need of retirement in the club’s front lobby anytime throughout the year.
