A flag retirement ceremony took place at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 308 Saturday, June 14, on Flag Day, where collections of tattered American flags were honorably retired.
“A flag is retired when it has served its duty,” said VFW Men’s Auxiliary President Robert Arnold. “The ceremony is a respectful, solemn way to say goodbye to an old friend.”

VFW members and supporters often stand on the corner of Mile Hill Road and Main Street South to show their patriotism when events such as The CT United Ride, an annual motorcycle ride that honors those lost on 9/11, runs past the post as it moves through Newtown. It is just one way the VFW Post has been part of the community since it was chartered in March 1939. The public is invited to join current and former members to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the post on Sunday, March 2.
