Proper handling of the Star and Stripes

Tina Dillingham/The Messenger

Service Officer Amanda Barnett, left, and Roger Barnett, vice commander with the Maurice K. Gordon American Legion Post 6, picked up and properly folded a United States flag Tuesday afternoon at The Messenger. The Legion will have an informational booth set up at the Friday Night Live event this week for citizens who wish to properly turn in their old flags. Everyone who turns in a flag will receive a ticket for a drawing to win a new United States flag. Flag Day in America is celebrated Friday.
