A new set of banners could eventually replace those that currently welcome visitors to Palmerton's downtown business district.
With any luck, the new flags could be in place in time for the celebration of the centennial of the incorporation of the borough on Oct. 14, 2012.
Peter Kern, president of the chamber, discussed the need for the new banners recently with members of the Palmerton Area Chamber of Commerce.
The borough was officially incorporated on Oct. 14, 1912. The year 1998 marked the centennial of the founding of the borough.
