Cadets in Virden will be hosting a flag-burning this weekend — following protocol to properly dispose of flags that have their best flaps behind them.
The XII Manitoba Dragoons Cadet Corps will host the flag disposal on Saturday, April 19, and they're willing to help people respectfully dispose of any old, torn, ripped, rented or faded Canadian or provincial flags.
Flags can be dropped off in bags at Branch No. 8 of the Royal Canadian Legion, in Virden. The bags should be marked as flags for the cadets.
The flags will be destroyed in a respectful manner to ensure that no one gets their hands on them and uses them disrespectfully.
