Special to The SUN

American Legion Mullins-Nickerson Post 108 is collecting unserviceable American and Colorado flags for proper retirement and disposal. Flags in unserviceable condition should be disposed of with dignity.

The American Legion provides this service, and worn flags may be turned in to any Legionnaire or left at any of the following locations: Pagosa Springs Town Hall, Pagosa Fire District Station No. 1 on North Pagosa Boulevard, the Archuleta County Veterans Services Office in the Ross Aragon Community Center or Vega Insurance and Financial Services office at 818 Rosita St. (across the highway from the Ruby Sisson Library).

Flags will be collected now until July 14. The Post will then announce a date for when the flag retirement and disposal ceremony will take place.
