Silver Anniversary Flag March Winds Its Way to Campus


With only an occasional sprinkle despite the threat of thunderstorms, Saturday’s 25th annual God, Country and Community Flag March carried the event’s biggest crowd ever on a crosstown trek to Penn College’s main entrance. Under the majestic 60- by 30-foot American flag, participants listened to stirring music, honored active military and veterans alike, heard from community leaders, joined in a national recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance at 7 p.m., and enjoyed hot dogs and other treats provided by Humdinger. Trophies were presented in a number of categories including “Largest Group” honors to the 150-strong entourage from Lycoming County government and parade organizer Anthony DiSalvo distributed his trademark “Tony” awards.
