American Flag


Web Site Editor’s Note:

I have received the information below from Charles Taliaferro

“Please share the below message with your website viewers and newsletter readers.  I hope you deem us worthy of your support.  Thank you very much!”

I am pleased to share their offer of dedicated, patriotic service to our viewers.

Don't throw that American flag into the trash!
Do you have a old and frazzled flag that's laying around your office or home and you just don't know what to do with it?  Then send it to us!  We will properly dispose of it according to federal laws. 
Who are we?  Visit our website at http://www.kitchentablegang.org for details about us and what we are doing to help veterans and our soldiers overseas, and giving proper respect for ol'glory.
The Kitchen Table Gang Trust will retire your tattered, worn out and frayed American flags with honor!  Anything else is desecration!
Just send your flags to the non-profit Kitchen Table Gang Trust, 42922 Avenue 12, Madera, CA 93638-8866 and we will dispose of your flags in a proper and dignified manner with full honors and dignity pursuant to the United States Flag Code Section 8K (PL93-344).  The Kitchen Table Gang (formed 15 years ago) is a "rag-tag" bunch of patriotic military types helping hospitalized veterans and soldiers overseas.
Our flag retirement ceremonies are held on Flag Day, June 14th each year and are conducted by GySgt Dan Kelley USMC and an all volunteer military honor guard with Boy Scouts assisting.  The Kitchen Table Gang Trust also has a nationally recognized educational program for our young people and students, teaching them the history, traditions and respect for our national emblem.
When you send us a flag, we'd sure appreciate it if you would enclose a tax deductible donation for this service which allows us to continue and expand our many programs.  We do good things with your contributions.
We are located at the junction of Highway 41 and Avenue 12 just down from the world famous red, white, and blue barn on the way to Yosemite National Park.
Send us your flags!
