The Virgin Valley Heritage Museum is pleased to invite the community to a flag retirement ceremony on Saturday, September 12 at 6:45 p.m. The ceremony will be held at the Heritage Family Park, located behind the Mormon chapels on Arrowhead Lane.

A group of local Boy Scouts will retire the flags under the direction of David Leavitt. The ceremony is intended to remind us all of the meaning and significance of the American flag. The whole family is invited to this activity. Parents are encouraged to visit with their children beforehand about the history of the flag and its symbolism. Come join us in celebrating and honoring this symbol of freedom.

For more information about this activity and the Museum, call (702) 346 5705, find us on Facebook at MesquiteNVMuseum or stop by the Museum at 35 W. Mesquite Blvd. The Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
