Newspaper drive

Members of St. John's Lutheran Church will hold their monthly newspaper drive on Saturday, March 1. 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, which is always open. In case of bad weather, the drive will be held the following Saturday.

Concourse Club

The Palmerton Concourse Club will meet at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 6, in the Parish Hall of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, 502 Lafayette Ave., Palmerton.

The topic for the meeting is "What in the ... do you use this for?," and antiques show-and-tell with Jack Gunsser.

Remember to bring cookies for nursing homes.
