EAST MIDDLEBURY — In honor of Veterans Day, an East Middlebury Veterans flag was displayed on the front of the Sarah Partridge Community House on East Main Street. The flag was hung by Henry Haskell and Toby and Renita Welch.
The original East Middlebury Veterans Flag dates from World War II. A blue star represents each soldier who enlisted from an East Middlebury address. On patriotic occasions, the flag was hung over (East) Main Street along with the American Flag. The last time the original flag was flown was on the 50th anniversary of VE Day.
