Shepherd of the Valley is collecting worn flags


Shepherd of the Valley-Poland, 301 W. Western Reserve Road, is collecting old, torn and faded American flags during the month of October.

Flags can be dropped off between 8:30 a.m. and 8 p.m. daily. Most flags are not retired with the ceremony they deserve, and Shepherd hopes to change that.

Flags will be delivered to a local veteran’s group for proper disposal.
