KINGSTON — In response to community requests, the Kingston Veterans Club has announced it now has a drop-off box for depositing old American flags.
Anyone who has an American flag that has served its purpose is invited to bring it to the drop-off box located at the recessed door entrance on the North Road side of the club building at 36 Church St. Flags will be officially retired at a ceremony in mid-January and a second ceremony July 4.
“We have had people bringing flags to us for years,” said Kingston Veterans Club President Steve Costa, “but sometimes we are not open, so now we have a box for dropping the flags off.”
