ST. MARYS – Though rain and wind forced a change of location, the weather didn't put a damper on Wednesday afternoon's flag-raising ceremony at Penn Highlands Elk.
The Donate Life flag was presented by CORE (Center for Organ Recovery and Education) to Penn Highlands Elk so that it can be raised at a later date to raise awareness for organ donation.
"We are a not-for-profit organization that partners with different hospitals across the area," Jessica Yokubeak, associate director of donor referral services for CORE, said. "We cover the western half of Pennsylvania, all of West Virginia and part of New York."
