The Broomfield Veterans Museum will host a special Flag Retirement Ceremony and Cookout on Saturday, June 12, 2021, beginning at 11:30 a.m. In honor of Flag Day, local veterans will kick off the ceremony with special remarks about the history and significance of the U.S. flag. North Metro Fire Rescue District and Broomfield Police Department's combined honor guard will lower the old flag for retirement and raise a new flag. A local scout troop will lead everyone in the Pledge of Allegiance, and special music will be performed as part of the ceremony.

Following the brief ceremony, the public is invited to help the museum retire hundreds of flags that have been donated from community members over the past year. Everyone is also invited to join in a patriotic picnic to celebrate the flag holiday.

Museum Hosts Civil War Event Commemorating 160th Anniversary

On Saturday, March 27, 2021, the museum hosted a group of Civil War reenactors who set up camp on the front lawn to mingle with visitors and give them a “first-person” view of the war that began 160 years ago. A sutler’s store, a mounted cavalryman, and a mountain howitzer provided a backdrop for plenty of family photos, and a talk by local Civil War expert Bob Moulder made for a complete immersive experience.

The following Saturday, John Peticolas, a member of the museum’s board of directors, gave a lecture about a relative who fought on the Confederate side.

The museum currently has a special Civil War exhibit featured as part of the rotating Forefathers Exhibit series.
