Retire American Flags at SMS

Do you have any stained, torn, worn out or tattered American flags?  If so, please bring them to Snoqualmie Middle School, 9200 Railroad Ave. S.E., Snoqualmie, to be properly retired. The middle school is sponsoring this community service project for the third year. As part of the school’s Veteran’s Day Assembly on Thursday morning, Nov. 10, the American Legion will have representatives on hand to officially take the flags and store them until they can be properly retired by the American Legion Post.

Drop off your worn flags at the school’s main office before November 10, between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. To learn more, e-mail to Thomas Burford, eighth grade U.S. History teacher, at
