"There is a certain enthusiasm in liberty, that makes human nature rise above itself, in acts of bravery and heroism." - Alexander Hamilton
The Veterans Best Practices Working Group was established in 2014 by the authority of Ordinance 14.066 (PDF). The group exists to "foster an employment-friendly environment for those who have served in the armed forces of the United States," working to encourage businesses in the St. Charles County community to develop veteran-friendly employment practices, including St. Charles County Government, and to inform veterans seeking employment of opportunities and benefits.
The County’s Veterans Best Practices Working Group is hosting its annual Flag Collection for the public from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Flag Day, Wednesday, June 14. The event takes place at a drive-by collection site, located at the corner of Monroe and Second streets in St. Charles, between the County Administration and Corrections buildings. The flags are donated to the AMVETS, who retire the flags ceremoniously.
