Eagle Scout project focuses on retiring old flags
August 31, 2016
As part of work toward his Eagle Scout project, Summit Boy Scout and Summit High student Wade Pfeifer recently dropped off eight boxes he constructed at county fire departments and two other locations with an important purpose.
The wooden containers painted with Old Glory are designed for people to properly discard tattered American flags at publicly accessible venues. The flags that are collected each year will then be retired during a Scout Troop 188 ceremony each Memorial Day.
The drop-off sites include four of Lake Dillon Fire's stations, two at Red, White & Blue Fire Protection District station in Breckenridge, and also at the Elks Lodge in Silverthorne and the Summit Historical Society museum in Dillon.
