Veterans' Day American Flag Retirement Community Service Project
Bring your worn or faded American flags to:
Waterville United Methodist Church
102 North Fifth Street, Waterville
Tuesday, November 11, 2014 - 7:00 am - 7:00 pm
Free and proper retirement of worn American flags will be provided by Waterville Boy Scout Troop 101
Just as we honor and respect our Veterans, it is right that we treat our "veteran" flags with honor and respect as we retire them from service. Flag etiquette prescribes that worn or faded American flags are to be replaced and that the weathered flags be decommissioned respectfully. Troop 101 is privileged to provide this service to the Anthony Wayne community and we are grateful to our Charter Organization, Waterville United Methodist Church, for supporting this project.
Weather permitting, Boy Scout Troop 101 will perform a flag retirement ceremony open to the public at 7:00 pm on November 11th in the church courtyard.

By now you have heard about the Enterovirus D68 that is spreading through the country. While the virus does not stop at a border, it has been found so far in 16 Midwestern States including Ohio. It presents in the form of a cold and is really concerning in children with Asthma. Strep throat, Hand Foot Mouth and the Flu are other popular items right now.
If you have a few minutes to remind/instruct on hand washing OFTEN!! Children are famous for skipping that step as you all know.
To help stop the spread of germs,
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
- Put your used tissue in the waste basket.
- If you don't have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow, not your hands.
- Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for 20 seconds.
- If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
Hand washing is always the best way to help from spreading those yucky germs!
