Seniors at Sunbury Village in Bangor had some fun at a special pre Flag Day celebration Thursday.Pam Butler, known as the “Flag Lady”, handed out American flags and organized the event.The group sang patriotic songs including “Yankee Doodle Dandy” and “You’re A Grand Old Flag.” “Some of our seniors don’t get out, and maybe can’t make the big one that we have at the armory and they just enjoy it, it brings back their good memories and reminds them why we have that flag flying over us,” Butler said. Tomorrow an annual Flag Day ceremony will be held at 6:00pm at the Bangor Armory.Butler has planned Flag Day celebrations in Bangor for 24 years.
