Today is Flag Day

The Tama County American Legion will be having their annual flag disposal ceremony at their June meeting on Tuesday evening, June 25, 2019, at the Clutier Post. It will follow a 6:30 p.m. pot-luck supper. We ask everyone with unserviceable flags to get them to a County Post for proper disposal before then. We also welcome 4-H and Scout members to come watch as it is a good learning experience to see how our flag should be disposed of when no longer in use.Americans salute the flag during Flag Day, observed every year on June 14.
