In preparation for Sunday's 13th Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade on Broadway in Jim Thorpe, the national flags of both the United States and Ireland have been raised high above the parade route in the downtown area through the cooperative efforts of both the members of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, Alec Campbell, Mauch Chunk Division I, Carbon County and members of the Jim Thorpe Fire Department. Jim Thorpe Fire Department Chief Bill Diehm and AOH Parade Committee Co-Chairman Noel Behan discuss the installation of the national flags. Complete parade lineup can be found on page 15.
