SIDNEY — Boy Scout Troop 97 conducted a flag retirement ceremony on Nov. 11, Veterans Day at the Union Hall on County Road 25A south.

Worn and tattered American Flags were honorably discharged of in accordance with the U.S. Flag Code. Disabled American Veterans Chapter 48 will assist with the ceremony.

Chapter Commander Dick Snider said he was pleased to see these young boys taking on this responsibility. It reflects well on their parents and scout leaders when we see this sense of community spirit and patriotism displayed by Troop 97, he said.

The unit has performed the ceremony for several years after removing the worn out flags from Graceland Cemetary that were placed there on Memorial Day.

Gavin Musser,13, a member of Boy Scout Troop 97, along with Disabled American Veterans Chapter 48 Commander Dick Snider, and Chuck Craynon, Boy Scout Troop 97 and retired U.S. Marine Corps., all of Sidney, lead the flag retirement ceremony Saturday.
