AUBURN, Maine (AP) - Republican Gov. Paul LePage is heading to Auburn to celebrate Flag Day with a descendant of Betsy Ross.

LePage will visit the American Legion Post 31 in Auburn on Sunday for an unveiling of a new flag mural. He will be joined by John Harker, a descendant of Betsy Ross - who’s credited with sewing the nation’s first flag. The event begins at 10:30 a.m.

The flag mural was created by artist Scott LoBaido (Lah-BAY-doh), who is spending six months traveling across the country and painting flag murals on American Legion Post or VFW buildings in all 50 states.
