Sad to think something so nice will be ruined in the end. If it gets to bad I'm sure they'll stop having it, and that SUXS its a nice time. Well, was a nice time for those of us who love Jim Thorpe and try not be an a-hole

I was a guest at a house party on the parade route (not McGinley). All I can say is that it was a lovely time, there were lots of adults with children, noone got inebriated or misbehaved, the teens were watched to keep them away from the beer. We had a great time, loved watching the parade, nobody where we were located was out of line, and we're looking forward to next year. I think the AOH did a fantastic job.

Guest, I agree I didn't see anyone drunk or out of line. Last year they marched some guy down the street who was acting up and everyone booed him. I can't wait util next year. I hope the weather is as nice as it was this year :o)

I will say again. The AOH Org Is a Good group. They have no control over some parties. However they need to ask why several org. or groups dropped out and have not come back.I do believe that the DUI Check points helped this year curb at least some of the drinking.I agree with your oppinion.Iam sure that the leadership of the AOH will act and turn things aroud.
