Reps. Fusco, Sampson Donate Collected Worn American Flags for Proper Disposal

Posted on June 8, 2018 by admin


State Representatives John Fusco (R-81) and Rob Sampson (R-80) want to thank the Southington community for donating worn or soiled American Flags during their collection drive. The legislators collected more than half a dozen worn flags and delivered them to American Legion Post 72 for proper, dignified disposal on Saturday, June 9.

The drive began on Friday, May 18th and continues until Wednesday, June 13th with a drop-off box located inside Southington Town Hall.

The U.S. Flag Code specifies that old or worn American flags no longer in service must be properly disposed, and Reps. Fusco and Sampson are partnering to proudly offer this service.  If you still have a flag to donate please bring them to Southington Town Hall or contact the American Legion.
