Exchange your worn flag
McClain Insurance is hosting a flag exchange June 8 to 12. McClain Insurance is at 10410 19th Ave SE in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Everett, just south of Costco. Stop by and exchange worn American flags for new ones between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
“We’ve learned that one of the biggest concerns for our neighbors is not necessarily the acquisition of a new flag, but rather the knowledge that there will be a proper ceremony for the retired flag,” said Claudia McClain, owner of McClain Insurance Services.
Retired flags will be disposed of in a ceremony held by the Boy Scouts of America.
