Gothenburg residents and organizatiions who may have flags that they wish to be retired, and then disposed of, in this moving ceremony are asked to deliver them to the KOA office before 6 p.m. Monday, or bring them to the ceremony.

Officers of the Lions Club will perform the retirement program. All who are gathered will be asked to participate in the disposal of the flags. Last year over 80 flags were retired.
