DICKSON CITY, Pennsylvania — Vice President Joe Biden is scheduled to mark St. Patrick's Day near the northeastern Pennsylvania city where he spent his childhood.

The White House says Biden will deliver remarks Tuesday evening at the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick of Lackawanna County.

The group is holding its annual dinner outside Scranton, where Biden spent part of his childhood. Biden left Scranton for Delaware when he was 10, but has returned to the area several times as vice president.

Biden spoke to a separate Friendly Sons of St. Patrick group in the area last year.
