She also gave instructions on the correct way to burn a damaged flag, including cutting it up into three portions of red and white stripes and one section of the blue and white stars, called the Union, demonstrated by auxiliary member Colleen Patterson. The VFW also provided lunch for veterans at Barone Middle School.
