Bay Village American Legion Post #385 is planning to formally retire old, faded and torn flags as part of their annual Veterans Day celebration. Citizens are requested to bring these flags to the Legion Post, 695 Cahoon Road, Westlake, next to the White Oaks Restaurant. There you will find a red, white and blue box next to the front door. Please place the flags in the box. Deposit the flags before Nov. 8, if possible.

The Legion retires flags twice a year, on Flag Day and on Veterans Day, following official retirement ceremonies.
