Flag retirement

Rancho Murieta marked Memorial Day with a flag retirement ceremony Monday evening by Boy Scout Troop 633. In a ceremony on the shore of Lake Calero, dozens of Murietans watched the scouts and their leaders feed the worn U.S. and California flags into the flames. Speakers remembered the military men and women who died in America's wars and the veterans who came home. The music of bagpiper Chuck Jamison mixed with the honking of passing geese to give the 45-minute ceremony an air of sweet sadness.
