Avon VFW places box for worn US flag disposal at Avon Free Public Library

The Gildo T. Consolini VFW Post 3272 of Avon and the Avon Free Public Library have joined together to place a collection box in the Library lobby for collection of worn U.S. flags.  This is part of the mission of the Veterans of Foreign Wars to make sure worn U.S. flags are properly disposed of in a respectful manner. The patriotic decorated wooden box was designed by Gary Kollberg of Farmington and it was built by Brian Freeman, his wife Charlotte and daughters Holly and Julia (pictured above).  Residents of the Valley are welcome to donate any and all worn U.S. flags during regular Library hours.  Members of the Avon VFW will pick them up on a regular basis for proper disposal.   Photo courtesy of Avon VFW Post 3272
