Scouts conduct flag retirement ceremony
Service held twice a year at post
DUNCANSVILLE — Boy Scout Troop 3031 of Duncansville conducted a flag retirement ceremony Feb. 16 at the Duncansville Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8724.
For this event, Troop 3031 was assisted by three members of Boy Scout Pack 331 of Hollidaysburg.
Boy Scout Troop 3031 is officially sponsored by the VFW Post 8724.
The Scouts conduct this ceremony twice a year — once in the winter, then later again on Flag Day.
The post regularly conducts retirement ceremonies for the proper disposal of area flags.
The public can drop off discarded flags at the VFW, via the 24-hour collection box near the entrance to the building.
