Tomorrow is Flag Day, and you are invited to observe it at West Seattle’s American Legion Post 160 in The Triangle, with flags accepted for retirement as well:

The American Legion Post 160 of West Seattle will hold a brief Flag Day Ceremony at noon on Saturday June 14. The ceremony will be held at the flag pole located at 3618 SW Alaska St.

Flag Day is a commemoration of the adoption of the flag of the United States which happened in 1777. President Woodrow Wilson officially established June 14th as Flag Day in 1916 by official proclamation.

Post 160 will also accept any worn or un-serviceable American flags for proper disposal at that time. A small, voluntary donation will be accepted to help defray the costs of the flag retirements.
