There will be one sweep of the Palmerton, Aquashicola and Little Gap areas beginning at 8 a.m. Papers should be bundled and placed within sight of the collectors. They are collecting papers only, no magazines. The shiny inserts are acceptable. They also need grocery size brown paper bags.
Persons missed, or those wishing to dispose of papers throughout the month, may take them to the garage across from the church on Fireline Road. In case of bad weather, the drive will be held the following Saturday.
