Benton Senior Citizens Need Worn, Retired Flags For Patriotic Project

Some senior citizens at the Benton Senior Center are taking part in a patriotic project, but need help to continue. The project is called “Stars for Our Troops.” The seniors re-purpose worn-out and retired American flags by individually cutting out embroidered stars from the flags. Linda Cline of the Benton Senior Center says the stars are given to veterans, active military personnel and first responders. The seniors would like to continue this project but they need of more flags. They should be 2-foot by 3-foot or 3-foot by 5-foot American flags that are worn and retired. Contact the Benton Senior Center at 570-925-6533 if you can help.
