State Representative Bill Simanski (R-62) concluded a used and worn American Flag drive to give constituents the opportunity to properly dispose of their flags. The collection began on May 18, with boxes stationed at town hall in Granby and Barkhamsted, and concluded on June 13, the day before Flag Day. Dozens of flags were collected and will be disposed with dignity according to the US Flag Code by American Legion Post 182. There is a collection box at the legion post in Granby that is accessible year round. Rep. Simanski added, “I was very pleased to see both boxes full of flags for proper disposal. It shows our community’s respect for our country and its symbols.”
