The American Legion Shaw-May Post 38 conducted a flag retirement ceremony on Monday.
More than 250 flags were disposed of by ceremonial burning.

Post Commander Dave Sammons said with Flag Day coming up Monday now is a good time to refresh faded or tattered flags flown at residences or businesses.
Unserviceable flags can be dropped off at the collection bin at 717 American Legion Road.
Post 38 will conduct flag burning-ceremonies twice a year or more as needed.
