The Burley American Legion, Post 17 has noticed several tattered U.S. Flags within our community which should be replaced. Did you know that you can buy your flags from the Burley American Legion? You can order either a Nylon, Cotton, or Polyester flags at the same price, or less, than you usually pay. When you purchase a flag from the American Legion, .10 cents of every dollar spent will be donated, by the seller, to Post 17 for our end of year awards or Post necessities. Last year, we had our 100th Birthday celebration and were able to purchase plaques for Teacher of the Year, Police Officer of the Year, and Fire Fighter of the year along with our Legionnaire of the year. With Memorial Day only a few months away, the wait to purchase new flags gets longer. To ensure you have a new flag for Memorial Day, please contact us to get your flag ordered. When your flag arrives, we can come and help take down your old flag, to properly destroy it, and help hoist your new flag, it’s really a simple process.
If you would like to purchase your flag, would like to donate an unserviceable flag, or would like more information on our programs, contact Post 17 Commander, Sue Kennedy at 2083120655. We appreciate your support!
