A Flag Retirement Ceremony will take place at the Mercer Veterans Memorial on Friday September 20, 2013 at 6 PM. The Mercer Manitowish VFW Post 9536 has been invited to perform the ceremony. The public is invited to attend. As seating is limited we suggest that you bring your own chair.
The ceremony will begin with the Pledge of Allegiance and then the first flag to be retired will be lowered and escorted to the Flag Retirement Basin. As the flags continue to be retired, patriotic music will play in the background.
If anyone has an American, POW/MIA, and a state flag that needs to be retired, please bring them with you to the ceremony and the VFW will retire it for you. State flags may be from any state, not just Wisconsin. For more information you may contact Marge Pemble at 715-476-3875.
