American Flag Retirement

Veterans Services collects worn and tattered flags for proper and respectful retirement.  American flags that have become faded, torn or weather-beaten can be brought to North Andover Town Hall and placed in our Flag Drop Box (located on the first floor).  The drop box is accessible during normal Town Hall business hours.
