The Ortega Equestrian Center and Boy Scout Troop 12 are doing their patriotic duty by asking the community to retire worn American flags with dignity.

John and Kathy Holman from the equestrian center and local Eagle Scout Andrew Ashby are accepting flags that are no longer fit for display to be ceremonially retired and properly disposed.

Flags will be accepted at the equestrian center, 27252 Calle Arroyo, until the end of October.
