The Charles H. Eyre American Legion Post 633 in Seaman is proud to announce the permanent placement of a flag retirement drop box.  Community members may now drop off worn American flags, POW/MIA flags, and state flags in need of retirement with the assurance that they will be retired properly with dignity and under the guidelines of American flag etiquette by Boy Scout Troop 290, Cub Scout Pack 290, or The American Legion Post 633.
The flag drop box offers the convenience of placing flags in the box at any time you are in Seaman. The box is located in front of the Seaman American Legion Post on the First State Bank side of the building. Everyone using the bank drive-through or ATM will see the box directly in front of them. The visibility and easy access will encourage community members to allow Post 633 to properly dispose of their worn flags. The Post is located at 17825 State Route 247 (Main Street) in Seaman.
According to Post 633 Commander Eric Newman, a flag drop box has been needed for a number of years, but the opportunity did not present itself until recently.  A successful Thursday night bingo and occasional black light bingo have provided necessary funds for the flag drop box as well as new benches for the front of the Legion Hall.
Bingo is the primary revenue source for the Post.  In recent years, the Post has made necessary improvements to the building and has greatly increased charitable contributions to local Veteran organizations and the community.
