Wilton American Legion hosts flag retirement ceremony
In honor of Flag Day today, June 14, members of the Wilton American Legion Post 584 held their annual flag retirement on Saturday, June 9 behind the Legion building. A total of 518 flags were inspected and retired. The Legion also has a new drop box for retired flags. Located at the Legion building at 201 E. Railroad St. (across from the Depot), flags can be dropped off in order to be retired properly. Old flags can also be dropped off at City Hall or the Convenience Center. Wilton Legion members are shown putting flags in two burn barrels behind the Legion building.
