NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. -- It's become a Flag Day tradition for a local insurance company – take old American flags, and give out new ones.
Flag Day is on Friday.
The Frigault Agency, along with NYCM Insurance, hosts the flag exchange program every year.
Your old flags will be properly retired, and you'll be given a new one to fly proudly.
The exchange is happening Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at the office on Clinton Road, in New Hartford.
“It just brings a fun celebration and makes you remember and think about the importance of flying the flag and giving honor to the veterans who have risked their lives. One of our signs says 'freedom isn't free.' It's because of the bravery of our men and women who fought for that freedom,” said Carol Frigault.
And you don't have to turn in a flag, to get a new one. Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. while supplies last.
