ROCKFORD — Miracle Mile Rockford will hold a flag retirement ceremony Monday to lay its old, tattered flags that periodically line the corridor to rest.
The group will be joined by VFW Post 9759 Honor Guard, singer Jodi Beach and Boy Scout Troop 14 from Our Savior’s Lutheran Church at 6 p.m. Monday in the former Magna parking lot, 3915 E. State St., for the ceremony.
“This very dignified ceremony should be witnessed at least once in a person’s lifetime,” Miracle Mile Rockford wrote in a news release.
People are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and any flags they wish to retire. The event will be postponed to May 2 in case of rain.
Miracle Mile Rockford is a nonprofit business district association that supports businesses and residents from UW Health SwedishAmerican Hospital to Rockford University, south to Charles Street and north to Guilford Road.
