Flag donation boxes constructed, flag dedication ceremony to be held for local Eagle Scout project

Eagle Scout candidate and Village Church member Andrew Presa of Troop 766 in Rancho Santa Fe led the construction of three flag retirement boxes so that community members can donate old flags for proper retirement. These flags will be dedicated at a ceremony in August.

“The flag is an important symbol of our country. It represents freedom and liberty,” said Andrew. “I have many family members who have served our country and there are many Village Church members who are in the military or who are veterans and the church serves military families. My project is about honoring our country, all those who serve, and the flag.”

The public is invited to attend a flag dedication...
