HARTFORD – With the summer season and patriotic holidays such as Memorial Day, Flag Day and the Fourth of July on the horizon, it is the perfect time to properly retire your worn, faded and tattered American flags as you prepare to put on fresh new displays of the Stars and Stripes.

The drop-off locations are:

  • Barkhamsted Town Hall – 67 Ripley Hill Road, Pleasant Valley, CT
  • Granby Town Hall – 15 North Granby Road, Granby, CT
