Flag Retirement Box Presented to BFPD

 

Eagle Scout McKinzie White Presents Flag Retirement Box to Chief Casey

 

McKenzie White, who is a member of Gray Summit Scout Troop 433, presented Chief Casey with a Flag Retirement Box that he constructed as an Eagle Scout project. The box is well crafted of birch veneer stained in maple and stands approximately 4 feet tall. A plaque is mounted to the top that Scout White wrote to honor and respect the dignity of the Flag. The box will be in the main lobby at Boles Fire Protection District Station 1 at 2600 Highway 100 in Gray Summit, MO.

The Flag Retirement Box is one of three that Scout White has made. A box was also given to the Pacific Fire Protection District Station 1 and one to the Pacific City Hall. The Boy Scouts plan to collect flags during the year from the boxes. The next flag retirement ceremony is scheduled for November 12th at 4:00pm at Liberty Field in Pacific, MO. Scout White encourages everyone to respect the Flag by depositing their worn or unused flags in one of the boxes and "Thanks You for Your Patriotism".

Dorothy and Dan White are very proud of the accomplishment that McKenzie has made with his project and were present during the presentation. The Boles Fire Protection District is proud to display this box for the public to use to deposit their worn or unused flags.

Thanks to Scout McKenzie White for a job well done!
