Commander Joe Wiltsey presided as flags were presented and deemed unserviceable.

After a short program, Legion members disposed of nearly 300 flags that had been dropped at the Legion club through the year.

Flag Day was established to honor the anniversary of the adoption on June 14, 1777, of the original Stars and Stripes as the official flag of the United States.
