Darrell Hamilton isn't exactly sure how long North East has celebrated Flag Day.
It's been decades, at least.
"I enjoy hooking up with the Boy Scouts and the Girl Scouts for this. It's very patriotic for the children to see," said Hamilton, North East's police chief for 40 years.
The Town of North East will keep the tradition alive with the annual Flag Day celebration. That event is set for Wednesday, June 14 at 6:45 p.m.
