This is the 12th year North Shore Bank has held
the collection, which has netted thousands of worn flags for retirement.
Damaged and worn flags will be collected at all North Shore Bank locations throughout Wisconsin, including at the Greendale (5101 S. 76th St.) and Franklin (7151 S. 76th St.) locations.
“The American flag is a paramount symbol of patriotism, and we are honored to play a role in sharing respectful ways to dispose of worn or tattered flags with our neighbors,” said Sue Doyle, vice president of branch administration. “We are happy that the Exchange Clubs, the American Legion and the Scouts are able to help us with the 12th anniversary of this event. They are all great organizations that continue to serve their communities in so many ways.”
