As part of the 2015 Flag Day Ceremonies, the Bay Village American Legion Post #385 will retire old, torn or faded flags on Friday, June 12, at 6 p.m. The Post home at 695 Cahoon Road, Westlake, next to the White Oaks Restaurant, will be the location of the retirement.

Citizens can place their old flags in the red, white and blue box next to the front door of the Post home. The flags are retired using exacting military procedures. Each year the Post retires over 300 flags as part of their Flag Day and Veterans Day programs.
