NORWALK, Conn. – The Norwalk Fire Department recently assisted Norwalk Cub Scout Pack 97 with a flag retirement ceremony at the department’s maintenance facility on Fairfield Avenue.

In addition to the Cub Scout members and their families, American Legion Post 12 Commander Rich Olson and firefighters were in attendance.

Olson, along with Cub Scout leaders Dan Koteen and Mike Szarpa, explained the history and traditions of the flag as a symbol of our nation at the event.

After a brief ceremony that included singing “God Bless America,” The Pledge of Allegiance and proper flag retirement protocol, the scouts placed the flags into a fire for disposal.
