Cashton Boy Scouts perform flag retirement/burning ceremony
July 8, 2020
The Boy Scouts of America Handbook says, “A national flag that is worn beyond repair may be burned in a fire. The ceremony should be conducted with dignity and respect and the flag burned completely to ashes.”
Cashton Boy Scouts held a ceremonial burning last Wednesday, July 1. Social Distancing guidelines were followed, and scouts followed the direction of scout lead, Nate Balk, until all flags were disposed of properly.
