Massapequa Park Mayor Daniel Pearl recently attended a Memorial Garden & Flag Retirement Ceremony at the American Legion Massapequa NY Post 1066.

This annual ceremony allows for the proper retirement of flags that are collected throughout the year from the community.

According to the U.S. Flag Code, “the flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.”
