A Veterans Day ceremony and flag waving event was held at the Joshua Chamberlain Bridge on Wednesday morning.

The event — organized by Dick Campbell — brought Bangor and Brewer together to honor veterans and active military personnel since the annual parade was canceled this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Patti Pelletier said she usually goes to the parade and was disappointed that it was not happening this year.

“We have to honor the veterans somehow today and not forget them.”
