Post 68 raises flag for local community

Leland, NC

Magnolia Greens Golf club in Leland, N.C., was presented with a new flag by John E. Jacobs American Legion Post 68 of Leland on Friday, Sept. 2.

The ceremony retired the old flag with honors, and a new flag that had flown over the battleship North Carolina was raised.; course management was presented with a certificate for their flag indicating such.

The old flag will be retired at a flag retirement ceremony to be held sometime in October in Leland. Boy Scout Troop 747 assists The American Legion with that ceremony, which includes over 450 retired flags.

The American legion has helped other community organizations with retiring and raising new flags in our community. Please contact us if your group wishes The American Legion to assist with your flag replacement.

Magnolia Greens' existing flag is retired and presented to the local course manager.
