The American Legion, Girl Scouts, military, first responders, and the public held a flag retirement ceremony on Saturday, September 8, 2018. There were buglers for taps, an honor guard gun salute, and each person in attendance was given a star off a flag and grommet. Girl Scouts could also take home a shell casing from the gun salutes.

We lost our son (Firefighter Kendall Murphy) on November 10, 2017. He was a firefighter responding to an accident and he was hit getting out of his car. I am also on the fire department. Troop 63979 sent out department stars and I wanted to show you how we used them. One of our members made this flag out of old fire house and he used the stars the Girl Scout troop sent. What a thoughtful way to honor those who serve and have lost their lives serving. THANK YOU!
