Members of Manchester's American Legion Gold Post 78 recently donated a new flag, and hoisting line, to Manchester Funeral Home.

Members of Manchester’s American Legion Gold Post 78 recently donated a new flag, and hoisting line, to Manchester Funeral Home. The Funeral Home had a flag pole, but couldn’t use it because the rope used to raise & lower the flag had deteriorated.

Post 78 Commander Robert Mullins, and First Vice Commander Stephen Sember, first installed new line on the pole, and then raised a bright new American Flag. Funeral Home staff were elated with the ability to again use their flag pole.

American Legion also reminds everyone that faded, frayed or otherwise unserviceable American Flags are never to be discarded in the trash.
