As a revered symbol of the United States of America, our flag should be disposed of in a respectable manner.  Retiring the American flag, with the respect and gravity that it is entitled, is a great way to show our appreciation of the “stars and stripes” and all it stands for, and is a time-honored tradition and one that carries a great significance.

The Township thanks Eagle Scout Gabriel Fatzinger, of Troop 190 of the Boy Scouts of America, for placement of a flag disposal box on Township property.  The white metal box is located adjacent to the Township building at 100 Gettysburg Pike, and can be used by citizens for flag disposal 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
