THORNVILLE — The Thornville AMVETS Auxiliary recently presented an American flag at the Lakewood High School. In fact, a total of six American flags and one POW/MIA flag were donated to the entire Lakewood School system.

This is actually a joint program with the Thornville AMVETS veterans and auxiliary. The goal is to replace any torn, tattered, or worn American flag or POW/MIA flag.

Also, the discarded flags may be turned into the AMVETS located at 9293 Township Road, Thornville. The AMVETS will replace flags at private residences, schools, churches, non-profits.

Any questions regarding the flag replacement program please contact Auxiliary Americanism Chairman, Ruby Whetherholt, at 740-605-1451 or Auxiliary President, Debbie Pittock, at 740-975-8907. One may also call the Post at 740-246-4880.
