Kudos & Announcements – June 2021

Retire Your Old American Flags Properly

If you’re like me we all wear out a couple of American flags per year. Those flags need to be retired properly.

Remember back to the Clubs Car show days and one of the popular events was Troop 855’s evening Flag retirement ceremonies. Those scouts collected and retired some 600-800 flags at each event.

Nevada County approached me about including that as part of their upcoming “Military Appreciation Days”. Rather than just buying boxes I thought the more positive happenings would be if our High Schools & kids could build the boxes and design the graphics to attract people to those boxes.

What you see is the first of 8 boxes which will ultimately be placed around the county including Truckee. The Ag Class at NU built the boxes and the Graphic Design program at Bear River designed 8 sets of graphics to tell the story.

Need to retire a flag? See these boxes at Riebes, Big A, The Rood center, B&C, the County VSO office and locations in Truckee starting June 14th, Flag Day. Flags will be retired on Veterans Day 2021.

From the Chamber of Commerce:

When California fully reopens the economy, the state will move beyond the Blueprint for a Safer Economy.If the numbers remain consistently low, Nevada County will transition into the Orange Tier today. For thirteen days, we will adhere to the Tier 3 capacity mandates, counting the days to June 15th when the Tier System goes away.

Beginning June 15, all sectors listed in the current Blueprint Activities and Business Tiers Chart may return to usual operations (with the limited exceptions noted below for Mega Events) based on the following general public health recommendations:

Everyday Life: California plans to fully reopen the economy on June 15th. Everyday life will feel a lot like before covid-19. Restaurants, shopping malls, movie theaters, and most everyday places will be open as normal with no capacity limits or social distancing required. Of course, anyone can wear a mask anytime they’d like, especially around children and others who are vulnerable or not yet eligible for vaccination.
