Jesiel Sponsors U.S. Flag Exchange and Disposal Program in Honor of Veterans Day

Residents of the 61st District wishing to turn in an old U.S. flag and exchange it for a new one may bring their used flag to the district office of State Representative Sheri Jesiel (R-Winthrop Harbor).

In honor of Veterans Day, Jesiel is sponsoring the flag exchange to allow residents to obtain a new flag to fly at their home or business, while supplies last. Flags may be exchanged until Tuesday, November 10. Area residents that are not constituents of the 61st District may also bring their flags in for proper disposal, while veterans may receive a new flag even if they do not have one to exchange. The program is free of charge and provided at no cost to taxpayers.

“With Veterans Day approaching, what better way to express your respect for our veterans than to fly our nation’s flag at your home or business,” said Jesiel. “This show of support for our veterans and troops serving overseas is a simple way to stay ‘thank you for your service.’ I hope local residents will take advantage of this opportunity to honor our nation.”

Rep. Jesiel’s District Office is located on the lower level of the Warren Township Center at 17801 W. Washington Street, Gurnee, IL 60031 and is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Friday. For further details, call 847-855-8600 or visit
