Scouts Help Border Days Committee

Nick Hilbert (center), member of the Border Days Committee, presented 15 damaged flags to scouts with pack and troop 555 (sponsored by the Grangeville Elks Lodge) for honorable disposal during a Flag Day ceremony held Thursday, June 14. Flags ranged in age from one to three years, and these were ones displayed along Main Street leading up to and during Border Days. Flags soiled or damaged beyond repair may be disposed in such fashion, and these are normally collected throughout the year by local veterans’ groups for periodic retirement ceremonies.
