Edwards O'Banion Post 82 will host a flag retirement ceremony Sunday at 2 p.m. at the American Legion.

The flag retirement ceremony is a way to honorably dispose of old or worn flags. The only recognized way to dispose of the American flag is by fire.

Flags to be retired are those that have become faded and shredded from wind, rain or sun. Flags that have dulled and yellowed due to pollution can also be retired.

In case of bad weather, services will be inside.

Master of ceremonies Bobby Baker, Campbellsville Mayor Brenda Allen and Taylor County Judge/Executive Eddie Rogers will speak and the Campbellsville National Guard and Marion County Honor Guard will perform a 21-gun salute.

For more information, call Baker at 465-4782 or Laurie Mandi at 469-1077.
