More than 200 retired American Flags were retired Sunday afternoon at the Lake Shore Funeral Home.

A retirement ceremony was held and involved people from the community, including many veterans.

Flags were brought in for the past few months and were cremated at the conclusion of the ceremony.

"It’s the American thing to do it makes you feel good we had a great retirement Ceremony," says Brent Shehorn of the Funeral Home.

"We had members of the community, folks were able to participate it was just a great feeling."

People who attended were able to watch the flags be cremated from the Funeral Home's new furnace room.
