Today's Flag Retirement ceremony is canceled due to severe weather in Chicago's forecast between 3-9PM. United States Flag code stipulates that a flag should never be flown during inclement weather, so we are considering future dates to conduct this ceremony and continue the Scouting tradition. Future date will be posted here.
