Disposal of Tattered American Flag 

Flag Day is June 14. The day commemorates the adoption of the Stars and Stripes as the official flag of the United States

Many Americans proudly fly the U.S. flag at their homes and places of work, but what do you do with it when it's old and ratty and you're ready for a new one? Don't just throw it in the trash like any other old item — that's considered disrespectful. 

Just as there's etiquette for displaying Old Glory, there's also etiquette for disposing of flags in a dignified manner.

Flag Retirement Ceremonies:
Many state and county government offices and Veterans of Foreign Wars posts have flag disposal boxes outside of their buildings. Police stations also collect them. Once the disposal boxes are full, various organizations such as American Legions, VFWs, and the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts collect the flags and hold flag retirement ceremonies. The U.S. flag is considered such a sacred symbol that burning it in an undignified manner constitutes desecration. That's why the ceremonies are held in a specific manner.

Every year on June 14, Americans celebrate Flag Day. Not surprisingly, it's considered the most appropriate day to hold flag disposal ceremonies, which are often held at night. 

During an American Legion ceremony, participants stand aligned in two parallel rows about 20 feet apart, facing each other. A small fire burns beyond the rows of members, opposite the Legion commander. 

Other Methods of Disposal:
Flags don't always have to be disposed of with such pomp and circumstance. If you can't drop yours off with one of the aforementioned groups, you can do your own small ceremony — as long as it's still held in a dignified manner.

According to the VFW, you first need to fold the flag in its customary manner. When you start your fire, make sure it's big enough to fully burn the flag before you put the folded flag on it. Next, salute the flag and say the Pledge of Allegiance or hold a moment of silence. Other veterans service organizations say people can also bury the folded flag in a dignified box, or recycle them — an option common for flags made of synthetic or nylon material that can be hazardous if burned.

Flamingo Adoptions

If you're new to Cypress Cove, you might be wondering what the hoopla is about with pink flamingos all over the place. Every year, a resident-run fundraiser, benefitting the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, takes place between Memorial Day weekend and Parrothead weekend. Flamingos are adopted by donors and proudly displayed around the Cove to show support. When you adopt a flamingo, you receive raffle tickets for the PARROTHEAD RAFFLE. These prizes range from things like gift baskets to party wagons full of spirits. 

So, show your support for this great cause by adopting a bird. If you can't display the flamingo, we will find a suitable place for it at Cypress Cove. Be on the lookout for the pink flamingos at the pool complex! This is where you can donate and pick up your tickets. You can also donate here if you'd like. 

Library Plans for Remodeling

Sometime this summer, The American Nudist Research Library will close for a couple of weeks of remodeling.  As we add more shelves, we must find a new home for our sturdy woodgrain and metal scanning table.  At four feet square, it would make a beautiful dining table for up to six people. 

Stop by to look around any Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, or Saturday afternoon.  Donations of money, magazines, books, videos, or time are always welcome

Ricki Lake Shares Nude Photo While Applauding Herself for Having ‘Complete Self-Acceptance’ at Age 54

We all remember the actress turned 90's talk show host... Good for you Ricki!

"'Hands down, these days are the best of my life,' the Hairspray actress, 54, wrote via Instagram on Tuesday, June 6, alongside a nude photo. '54 1/2 years old (young!).' In the snap, the former talk show host crossed her arms over her bare chest while sitting in a bathtub in the middle of the woods. She leaned back and had a big smile on her face as she enjoyed the great outdoors with her husband, Ross Burningham." Read the full story HERE.
