21 Acres enjoys a year-round relationship with the Veteran’s Conservation Corps and on November 10th from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. they are sharing an opportunity to properly retire your “old Glories” in celebration of Veteran’s Day. According to the United States Flag Code, when a flag is worn and no longer a fitting emblem of display, the American Flag must be disposed of in a very particular, dignified manner and only a few named groups are allowed to do so.
Located at 13701 NE 17st Street in Woodinville, you’re invited to join our Veterans and the 21 Acres staff at the flag pole for a short talk on the American flag at 11 a.m. Bring your worn flag and it will be ceremoniously disposed of (burned and ashes buried). Tammura George, Navy Vet and coordinator for this program, requests you transport your flag carefully, ensuring it does not touch the ground. He hopes attendees will share their flag’s history – where was it flown? Was it flown for a person or a reason?
If you’re not able to attend, simply drop off your flag in advance. The public is invited to walk the 21 Acres Farm any day the gates are open to enjoy the “Veteran’s Half Acre.” For more information on the Veteran’s programs at 21 Acres please visit ‘The Veterans Garden at 21 Acres’ Facebook page.
