Flag Retirement Facility

In 2017, South Fayette Township resident Jacob Kanaskie created an American Flag Retirement Facility in Fairview Park for his Scouts BSA Troop 248 Eagle Scout service project. The facility, located near the Fairview Entrance Pavilion, allows individuals and groups to respectfully dispose of U.S. flags, either by depositing them in a donation box or performing an appropriate ceremony. The Scouts led the inaugural flag retirement ceremony on Memorial Day 2017.

Flag Donation Box

If you wish to have a flag retired but not perform a ceremony, you may deposit flags in the donation box near the Fairview Park Entrance Pavilion during regular park hours, from sunrise to sunset. Scouts periodically will retire the flags appropriately.
