Local Girl scout troop 72886 heard that the AXIS/CEC flag was going to be replaced and jumped at the opportunity to officially retire the flag. A girl scout color guard stood at attention while scouts lowered and folded the flag. The two masters of ceremony read a script that explained why they were retiring the flag and what the steps of the process represented. The troop will hold the second half of the ceremony, which will include a ceremonial burning and burial of the flag, during their summer camping trip. Scouts who participated in the ceremony: Andrea Ortiz, Emma Hamel, Dinah McDaniel, Callie Sutherland, Adi Story, Kaydence Clark, Harley Carroll, Adelyn Aldrich and Eloise Grim.
