Flag burning ceremony

Evan Childs American Legion Post 87 and Mt. Adams Elks Lodge 1868 performed an American flag retirement ceremony behind the Grange Hall on Flag Day, Friday, June 14, at 6 p.m. They conducted a patriotic ceremony to fittingly retire old, worn U.S. flags submitted by citizens of Klickitat County. They also recognized all eight flags that have flown over the continental United States. Persons with old or worn flags can drop them off in a receptacle located near Hunsaker Oil in White Salmon. Legion members will retrieve them from there.
