The Flag disposal ceremony that was planned for Wednesday was postponed due to inclement weather.

Tommy Clack, Chariman of the Walk of Heroes Foundation and area service manager for the Georgia Department of Veteran Services, received the negative weather report from the Federal Avation Association Wednesday morning and decided to push back the event.

With no window of opportunity without forecasted rain or drizzle, the ceremony to burn unusable U.S. flags at the Walk of Heroes at Black Shoals Park wouldn't have been able to be succesfully accomplished.

The same event, that was originally scheduled to commemerate Pearl Harbor Day, will now take place seven days later, on Dec. 14.

"Hopefully the weather will allow us to have it then," Clack said.

Veteran Services is still collecting flags at the J.P. Carr Community Services Building at 981 Taylor St., and at American Legion Post 77 at 764 Legion Road.
