Veteran Virgil Zeller removes the last flag from the flag collection box outside Licking City Hall Wednesday, May 18. He estimated that flags had not been collected from the box since the fall, and it contained 37 flags. Flags are removed with care to ensure they never touch the ground; even though they are destined for disposal, it must be done correctly. VFW Post #6337 will hold a Flag Disposal Ceremony in the fall.
