HONORING OLD GLORY...Flag Retirement ProgramWednesday, January 01, 2014 to Wednesday, December 31, 2014
Community members who would like to donate their tattered, torn or faded American flag(s) to the "Honoring Old Glory" program can bring it to any one of Hiers-Baxley Funeral Services’ five locations as well as Highland Memorial Park; The flag(s) will be registered for the program and great care will be taken to ensure that “Old Glory” is decommissioned honorably.
Justin Baxley with Hiers-Baxley Funeral Services said this, “Our flag, like each of us, has a life span. It is exceeding important that when an American flag becomes worn and tattered or is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display; it should be decommissioned with solemnity and respect. Hiers-Baxley Funeral Services and Highland Memorial Park have partnered with the Boy Scouts of America, Troop #72 to retire American flags in a dignified way.”
