Owen Electric is proud to be one of four host locations for Gary Sebastian Alcorn's flag collection boxes.
Alcorn, a Life Scout from Troop 891, Owenton, Kentucky, is working on his Eagle Scout rank.
'I chose this project because scouting teaches us that we should have a good citizenship and respect for the American flag,' Alcorn said. 'The people of Owen County will have a place to put their worn out American flags so Troop 891 can collect and retire them properly.'
The boxes took more than 92 hours to build with the help of 14 others. Boxes will also be located at City Hall, the Owen County Cooperative Extension Office, and at Monterey Market.
