Girl Scouts retire worn flag

Burning Flag

TIPPECANOE Co., Ind. (WLFI) – Almost 60 Girl Scouts helped put a flag to rest Wednesday afternoon at Camp Sycamore Valley.

This year the organization partnered with the Indy 500 Festival and the Indiana War Memorials Commission to collect worn flags. The program allows scouts to learn about why it’s important to retire the flag  and more about what the red, white, and blue stand for.

“It was kind of sad to see the flag go away but it was nice at the end when the people talked about how the flag would come up again,” said Ella Justice Coulter.

Camp Sycamore Valley was one of five camps across the state who participated in the the patriotic ceremony this summer. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
