Posted on May 22, 2019 by jpheasant


HARTFORD – State Representative Rick Hayes (R-51) in conjunction with the local American Legion and VFW encourages residents to ‘Retire Your Worn American Flags’ at three drop off locations within the 51st District. Flags will be collected from Tuesday, May 28th until Thursday, June 13th.

Killingly Town Hall, 172 Main St., Killingly

Putnam Town Hall, 126 Church St., Putnam

Thompson Town Hall, 815 Riverside Dr., North Grosvenordale

The U.S. Flag Code specifies that the flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.
