It's Flag Day - Drop off retired flags at the Recreation Center US flag

Flag Day is celebrated annually on June 14. This day commemorates the adoption of the United States flag on June 14, 1777. A reminder that, in partnership with the American Legion Kerlin-Lyerly Post 154, the Pflugerville Recreation Center, 400 Immanuel Road, has a drop-off collection point for retired flags. When your flag becomes worn, torn, or faded and it is time to replace it with a new flag, properly retire your American flag with the respect and gravity that it is entitled. Visit the Recreation Center to drop-off your flags.

Free adoptions for Father's Day Weekend

Become a pet dad. The Pflugerville Animal Welfare Services (PAWS) will have free adoptions for dads on Father's Day weekend, June 15-16. Check out animals available for adoption at pflugervilletx.gov/adopt. All animals come with spay/neuter, first puppy or kitty vaccines, deworm, and microchip and microchip registration. Many pets receive basic training from shelter volunteers, so several adoptable animals already know how to walk on a leash or sit, and have spent time in the real-life room making a transition into a home even easier. The animal shelter is located at 1600 Waterbrook Drive.
