Retire Your American Flags at Lyme Town Hall

June 14th, 2018

When your American flag becomes worn, faded, torn or soiled, it should be retired properly and replaced with a new one. Lyme residents can now retire their American flags in a special repository box at Lyme Town Hall, thanks to Theodore Wayland, a Life Scout from Troop 26 Boy Scouts.

For his Scout Eagle project, Wayland arranged to place repository boxes at our Town Hall, Old Lyme Town Hall and the Lymes’ Senior Center where townspeople can retire their U.S. flags. Wayland’s Scout troop, which hosts an annual flag-retirement ceremony at its local campsite each spring, will collect the flags and ensure they are retired respectfully and properly.

The goal of his Eagle project, which was sponsored by the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1467, is to help local residents better understand and facilitate the respectful retirement of U.S. flags. If you have an American flag you would like to retire, please place it in the repository box at Town Hall, which is located on the left in the vestibule as you enter the building.

Preparing for Emergencies

June 5th, 2018

The recent malfunction of the emergency-notification siren served as a reminder that the Town of Lyme resides within the 10-mile Emergency Planning Zone for the Millstone nuclear power plant. To help prepare our community to better respond to a real emergency, the Board of Selectmen would like to encourage all Lyme residents to take the following steps:

The following information may also be useful to know:

  • Millstone’s warning sirens may be activated for situations other than nuclear power plant emergencies, including incidents involving hazardous materials or weather-related emergencies.
  • The sirens are not a signal to evacuate; they are a signal for residents to turn on their TVs or radios, and listen for information from the state’s Emergency Alert System (EAS).  A list of stations that participate in broadcasting emergency alerts can be found in the Dominion Energy manual listed above.
  • As possible secondary sources of information, residents can also look for emergency notifications from the CT Alert system (see above); or on the Town of Lyme’s website or Facebook page.
