SPRINGFIELD, NJ – The Arc of Union County is a county wide organization that helps developmentally disabled adults.

Ellen de Havilland is its Music Therapist & Chair of Sights & Sound Committee.  Ellen wanted to raise the American flag on Veterans Day and noticed it was missing.  She thought to reach out to Congressman Leonard Lance’s Office to request a new flag.

On Monday Dec 12, Congressman Lance delivered a brand new flag that had been flown over the U.S. Capitol Building.  He presented it in front of those in attendance at The Arc.  The ceremony started with the Pledge of Allegiance and the singing of the Star-Spangled Banner.
