[ARCHIVED] Flag Retirement Ceremony Rescheduled for June 17

US Flag Backlit

Due to inclement weather, Wellesley's flag retirement ceremony has been rescheduled to Thursday, June 17 to properly dispose of worn or damaged United States flags. The community is invited to attend. 

The ceremony will take place at Woodlawn Cemetery at 10:00 a.m. The approved method of disposing of unserviceable flags is to burn them.

Every year Wellesley veterans work with the Town's Graves and Ceremonial Officer and the Fire and Police Departments to properly dispose of flags that have become faded, worn, or damaged. 

Residents can drop off unserviceable flags to be disposed of during the flag retirement ceremony at the Veterans Affairs office on the first floor of Wellesley Town Hall.
