Decades-Old Flag March Again Journeys to High-Flying Campus Landmark

Friday’s 30th annual God, Country and Community Flag March – a rain-or-shine event in which the latter brightly prevailed – traveled from downtown Williamsport to the 1,800-square-foot “Stars and Stripes” that flies above Penn College’s main entrance. Waving, wearing and celebrating Old Glory, participants clapped along with patriotic music, saluted active-duty and veteran servicemen and women, listened to community leaders, and joined in a Flag Day recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance designated nationally for 7 p.m. sharp. Awards were presented in a number of categories by Anthony DiSalvo, who has organized the flag march throughout its three-decade history, and the crowd enjoyed ice cream sandwiches on a picture-perfect weekend evening.
