The Dunwoody Nature Center will host a flag retirement ceremony at twilight on Flag Day, Friday June 14. The ceremony will be held in the lower meadow area of the Nature Center at 7:45 p.m. and should last no longer than an hour. 

Everyone is invited and encouraged to take part in this moving ceremony that will honor the flag, our country and all our veterans who contributed their service to maintain our freedom. Those who attend will leave with a great sense of pride and hopefully learn something new about the flag and what it represents. As this is the 75th anniversary year of D-Day, the Dunwoody Nature Center will honor World War II veterans during the service as well.

The ceremony will be performed in conjunction with local Scout troops who will serve as honor guards.

The public is welcome to bring old and worn flags, and the Dunwoody Nature Center will make sure they are respectfully retired. Most Scout troops also collect flags for retirement throughout the year. The meadow will have limited seating, so those not able to stand during the service are encouraged to bring portable chairs.
