HARTFORDState Representative Robin Green (R-55) in cooperation with the American Legion Post #197 is encouraging area residents to ‘Retire Your Worn American Flags’ at one of the four drop-off locations within the 55th District.

District-wide drop-off locations include:
Andover Town Hall, 17 School Road.
Bolton Town Hall, 222 Bolton Center Road.
Hebron Town Hall, 15 Gilead Street (Rt. 85)
Marlborough Town Hall, 26 North Main Street

Flags will be collected from Thursday, May 30th until Thursday, June 13th.
