Worn American flags can be turned in, traded for new

Area residents can trade their worn-out American flags this week for a new flag, courtesy of Prestige Senior Living Enumclaw.

The event is part of National Flag Week and ends Saturday, June 17.

The flag exchange is limited to the supply of flags at each location and reservations are available.

The flag trade-in is taking place at both Living Court Assisted Living, 2229 Jensen St., and Expressions at Enumclaw Memory Care, 2454 Cole St., both in Enumclaw. Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

To reserve a flag in advance from Living Court, call Olivia at 360-825-0280; to reserve a flag from Expressions at Enumclaw, call Ana at 360-825-4565.

To properly dispose of worn flags, Prestige has partnered with Boy Scout Troop 945 for a ceremonial disposal of the retired flags at a later date.
