Retiring the flag

Members of Circleville Boy Scout Troop 170, led by Scout Master Carl Amspaugh, left, performed a flag retirement for dozens of worn United States flags at Hargus Lake on Monday. Scouts were taught flag history, symbolism and the proper retirement process. Flags were collected from around the Circleville community. Troop 170 is sponsored by Trinity Lutheran Church and meets every Monday at 6:30 p.m.
