Networking mixer sponsored by LAC

Lehighton Area Council will be holding its bimonthly meeting on Tuesday Sept. 14 at the Beacon 443 Restaurant. The featured speaker will be Barbara Green, manager of the Blue Mountain Ski Resort, Palmerton.

Green will be speaking about all of the new and exciting updates at their resort, including the new water park in progress. This looks to be a very informational and interesting topic concerning a local business and should be of interest to all who attend.

The meeting will begin with socializing and networking at 5:30 p.m. with the meal at 6 p.m. Contact Lehighton Area Council at (610) 377-2191 or email at lacc@ptd.net [2] for reservations or questions. As always, the meeting is open to all members of the Carbon County Chamber of Commerce as well as the public. Bring your questions, friends and future CCCC members. RSVP by Sept. 13.
