Lehighton Area Pool Pals along with the Lehighton Rotary club are hosting a Halloween dance Oct. 31 at Flagstaff Ballroom. Music for the dance will be provided by Boomerang. Along with the band, two comedians will be on hand to entertain the crowd. Headliner Marc Juretus is a well known comedian in the Lehigh Valley area.

Proceeds will go toward the cost of children's swimming lessons next season at the recently refurbished Baer Memorial Community Swimming Pool.

Costumes are optional. There will be cash prizes awarded to the winning male and female contestant. Two of the judges for this contest will be the mayor of Lehighton Donald Rehrig and the incoming mayor of Palmerton Brad Doll.

Pool Pals and Rotary will be serving food. The menu will consist of turkey and beef barbecue, hot dogs, macaroni salad, tossed salad and brownies, cookies and caramel dipped apples for desert.

Tickets can be purchased by calling Mark Hoffman at (610) 377-5275 or contacting any Pool Pal member. There will be a limit of 400 tickets sold and one lucky person will win a door prize that will consist of a family pass for the 2010 swimming season.
