Cub Scout Pack 637 with the help of Boy Scout Troop 637 ceremoniously retired the flag at the Masonic Home for Children, Oxford. Scout troops lowered the worn flag, ritually retired it and raised a new flag. The fire used to retire the flag contained ashes from over 100 years of flag ceremonies. Over twenty children from the Masonic Home were in attendance.
