Flag Dedicated In Thomas County

By  | 

Local Emergency Response personnel gathered at the Northside Fire Station in Thomas County Saturday morning for the dedication ceremony.

Members of Woodman of the World presented local firefighters with the new flag and spoke about the true meaning behind the stars and stripes and the pledge of allegiance.

"We feel that there is very little respect often times given to our flag and we want to fly it high and we want to instill in people a pride for our flag," said Dewitt Rehberg, with Woodman of the World.

The new flag will proudly hang outside the fire station.

A flag retirement ceremony is also being held Saturday night, where old flags will be burned or retired in an official ceremony.
