Flag Retirement Ceremony Hosted by IVCB Veterans Club

June 22, 2023 | Julie Malkin-Manning

Incline Village Crystal Bay Veterans Club will host a ceremonial flag retirement on Monday, July 3rd on the Village Green. 

The ceremonial flag retirement is a dignified and respectful process of retiring or disposing of a flag that has become worn, faded, torn, or otherwise unfit for display while emphasizing respect and reverence. 

The event will begin at 7:45 PM with a bugler and bagpiper. The flag retirement burning will be timed with sunset. 

Collection boxes have been placed at the following locations for you to drop off your flag if it is time for its retirement and you are unable to attend the ceremony: 

  • IVGID Recreation Center
  • Incline Village Library
  • Email Lettie Miller for other drop-off arrangements. 

Please note: if there is something special about your flag, we will respectfully share it during the ceremony if you include a note with information when you drop it off. 

*This event is weather permitting.*
