Jemison Girl Earns Bronze Award Through Honoring Flags

As a Girl Scout, Abigail understands the importance of showing honor to our flag through a flag ceremony. Her project, Flag Retirement Ceremony, shows the importance of retiring a flag as well. Abigail held a U.S. Flag Retirement Ceremony and explained each step while her fellow Girl Scouts performed the ceremony. Then each person was given a small piece of a flag to put on the fire. Abigail knows that she performed a service to the community by respectfully retiring U.S. flags. Abigail showed her true Girl Scout and patriotic spirit by wanting to share her knowledge with others.
