Community Flag March Offers Renewed Tribute to ‘Old Glory’

Despite an abbreviated program and attendance thinned by rain, Williamsport’s 32nd annual God, Country and Community Flag March was held as planned Sunday night. The parade formed several blocks away at Nichols Place, eventually traveling onto the Penn College campus and ending under the 30-by-60-foot American flag outside the Student & Administrative Services Center. There, a 15-minute ceremony – including the national anthem; a cross-country recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance; and acknowledgment of Scout troops, veterans organizations and other patriots – celebrated the 238th birthday of America’s high-flying, ever-waving symbol.
