A general meeting of the Lehighton 9/12 Project will be held Thursday, Feb. 9, at 6:30 p.m. at Penn's Peak in Jim Thorpe.

Guest speakers will be Senator David Argall, State Representative Doyle Heffley, and State Representative Jerry Knowles.

Sandy Dellicker, president of the Lehighton 9/12 Project, said the meeting was initiated by Senator Argall, "who wanted to reach out to our 9/12 Project."

The three lawmakers will provide an update on what is going on in PA and Harrisburg.

Dellicker said, "It is so important that we stay in touch with our elected officials and hope that you will make a special effort to attend this meeting."

There will be a period for comments and questions, but Dellicker reminded that this is state and local - not federal.

If planning to attend the meeting, RSVP Dellicker at gramzey@ptd.net or phone (570) 645-8510.

As this is the club's first general meeting of 2012, the first 30 minutes will be set aside for 9/12 Project business.
