American Flag Retirement Ceremony


The Knights of Columbus 4th Degree Saint Joseph Assembly #2246 from Milpitas along with the American Heritage Girls Troop #0319 from Saint Frances Cabrini held a Flag Retirement Ceremony at Saint Victor’s Parish on June 14. The Knights of Columbus replace old worn American Flags with new ones. They reserve the old ones until a ceremony can be organized and the flags are retired by burning them with all the proper honors given to our National Flag. The American Heritage Girls and their leaders performed the ceremony while the Knights of Columbus Color Corps provided the Honor Guard. We want to thank the American Heritage Girls for their patriotism and community support for providing this service.
