Veterans hall receives flag deposit box

The Colusa Veterans of Foreign Wars Post No. 2441 had been looking for a flag deposit box for sometime when a local company stepped in to manufacture one.

The veterans group, along with the Boy Scouts, is among the few who conduct dignified flag burning ceremonies when American flags become old, worn, or tattered.

Many organizations used retired U.S. Postal Service mailboxes until the government discontinued making them available, said Bill Tanner, a Colusa VFW member

About to give up on having a large deposit box for people to turn over flags to the VFW for proper retirement, Rimrock Mfg., in Colusa, volunteered their fabrication skills and steel to build a deposit.

“We were looking for a deposit box for two years,” said Bill Tanner, a VFW member. “We got one built for us in less than two weeks.”

On Thursday, Colusa VFW Post Commander Mike Jones presented a certificate of appreciation to Rimrock Mfg. owner, Justin Wallace, and crew, thanking them for the deposit box.

The box has been installed in front of the VFW Hall, located at 108 E. Main St. (at Bridge Street), in Colusa.

Residents and businesses can deposit any American flag that it is in such a condition that is no longer a fitting emblem of display, in keeping with the U.S. Flag Code. The VFW will take care of their proper disposal in a dignified ceremony.
