Flag removal ceremony
MILLBROOK — In a ceremony usually held the Saturday closest to Veterans Day, foul weather moved the ceremony to Saturday, Nov. 19.
Although Boy Scouts are usually part of the work detail, there were no Boy Scouts on hand because they were on a camping trip.
Girl Scouts from troops 10078, 10294 and 10452 handled the job, removing old flags from veteran’s graves at local cemeteries, and bringing them back to VFW Post 9008, where they are given the proper send off — they are burned.
Sue DeMan, a veteran, also removed flags. The girls were there with leaders from the GS Millbrook Service Unit - Dawn Tompkins, Linda Obrizok, Chris LaBelle and Michelle Freer.
