State Rep. Terrie Wood is again hosting flag drop-off services for residents of Darien and Rowayton who want to retire their worn American flags with honor and dignity. But this time the dropoffs will be drive-through events to make them safer for people who haven’t been fully vaccinated. — an announcement from State Rep. Terrie Wood
The flag collection will be a drive-through event so that residents can dispose of their flags in a safe way while restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic are gradually easing, Wood’s announcement said. “It is important that we provide local residents to retire their old American flags with honor, respect, and dignity with a proper ceremony,” said Wood, a Republican whose district covers Rowayton and much of Darien. The first event will be held from 9 to 10:30 a.m., Saturday, May 29 at Darien Town Hall with First Selectwoman Jayme Stevenson.
