Flag retirement

June 13, 2010 | 7:11 p.m. CDT
As part of their Flag Day celebration, the Columbia Elks Lodge held a flag retirement ceremony for 28 well-worn flags donated by members and the community. The flags will be burned with dignity — cremated — at a private ceremony later in the week, according to tradition.
