NORWOOD -- The Norwood American Legion held their annual flag burning ceremony recently.

Each year the Legion asks people who have flags that are no longer in decent condition to bring them to the Legion hall on Maple Street so they can be properly disposed of.

Legion members will inspect them to see if they are unserviceable and had reached their present state in the proper service of tribute, memory and love.
