The public may drop off worn United States flags at a retirement ceremony on Saturday.
The flag retirement ceremony is being conducted 10 a.m. Saturday at the Elks Lodge, 423 Third St., West Sacramento. The public may drop off flags in disrepair from 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Saturday at the same location.
The military ceremony is being conducted by the Gold Country Base of the U.S. Submarine Veterans, assisted by the Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps unit from Luther Burbank High School.
When flags become old and faded, they should be retired and replaced with a new flag, according to organizers.
