Newburyport Boy Scout Troop 21 Retires Custom House American Flags

January 10, 2019

Members of Newburyport Boy Scout Troop 21 recently held an official Flag Retirement Ceremony for worn out American flags that once flew over the Custom House Maritime Museum.

The ceremony was conducted with dignity and respect and the flags were burned completely to ashes. The Custom House Maritime Museum is very grateful to the boy scouts and leaders of Troop 21 for taking such good care of "Old Glory"!

Well done! Thank you!
