Up until June 14, when a Flag Day ceremony will be held in front of Town Hall, you can drop off your worn and tattered U.S. flags at Darien Library, Town Hall or the VFW Post next to the Noroton Heights Fire Station. Here’s an announcement about the dropoff locations and the event from the Monuments and Ceremonies Commission:

Darien’s Monuments and Ceremonies Commission will partner with Darien’s Veterans of Foreign Wars Post No. 6933 to host Darien’s annual Flag Day Ceremony on Friday, June 14 at 4:30 p.m. at Veterans Memorial Circle in front of Darien Town Hall. Led by M&C Commission Chairman David Polett and VFW Commander Lenny Hunter, veterans and residents will recite the poem,” I Am Your Flag,” as the old flag is retired. State Rep. Terrie Wood is again sponsoring a flag collection to “Retire Your Worn American Flags,” until June 14.
