Saturday, May 18, 2019
On May 18, 2019 at 12:00 PM, on Armed Forces Day, American Legion Tri-Lakes Post 9-11 will officially retire as many as 400 American flags that have become tattered, frayed and discolored during their period of service to our country and our community. This is an annual ceremony performed by Post 9-11 in Palmer Lake in the parking lot on the West side of the Lake.
This is not just an American Legion event. Many other service organizations in the Tri-Lakes participate in honoring these flags and assisting in their retirement. Some of these organizations are the Kiwanis, the Knights of Columbus, Boy Scouts, Veterans of Foreign Wars, local school children and community residents.
