Doing it the right way

The Damascus Ruritan Club’s American flag retirement ceremony was held Saturday at the Damascus Community Center off of Damascus-Georgetown Road. The event is an annual national Flag Day tradition. Participating were members of Boy Scouts Troop 55 of North Georgetown under troop leader Paul Antram. Numerous flags collected from patriotic-minded citizens were collected for proper disposal. Shown above, from left, are troop members Dakota Herron and Luke Salmen. More photos appear in our Neighborhood News category. (Salem News photo by J.D. Creer)
