Flag Retirement Ceremony; chance to help Wounded Warrior Project
Plan to take part in the Flag Retirement Ceremony to be held at Jay’s IGA of Alma this Saturday.
July 4t Jay’s IGA and the Bacon County Boys Scouts will be hosting the Flag Retirement Ceremony in the parking lot that day.
The ceremony will state at 10 a.m. and last for about one hour. The ceremony is open to anyone that would like to participate and to anyone that has an American Flag that is damaged and needs to be properly retired.
The ceremony is the official way for Americans to show their respects to the Flag, to the soldiers who have fought to protect the flag and to everything the American Flag represents.
Jay Williams and the Boy Scouts invite the public to come and witness the Ceremony.
In addition, following the Ceremony the scouts will be selling hot dogs and Cokes from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. with all proceeds going to the Wounded Warrior Project.
“Please help us in supporting our wounded Veterans who have given so much for us to be able to live in the home of the free and the brave,” said Williams. “We hope to see you on the 4th.”
IGA has been a long-time supporter of the Wounded Warrior Project and has donated millions of dollars to help these vets.
Bacon County Fire Chief Bradley Taylor received a $60,000 check from the Bacon County EMS to pay off the last Ambulance purchased by the department. The department now has just one of the older ambulances to replace to have a complete new fleet of ambulances to provide services to the residents of Bacon County.
