Lehighton Area Council of the Carbon County Chamber of Commerce will be hosting their Annual Christmas Gathering at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 14 at Country Inn and Suites, 1619 Interchange Road, Lehighton.

Lehighton Council will be furnishing beverages. Those attending are asked to bring a favorite hors d'oeuvres, snacks or desserts to share with fellow Chamber members. Also, feel free to bring an adult beverage.

This year, as in prior years, instead of exchanging gifts, those attending are asked to bring one or more nonperishable food items and/or a cash donation that could be given to our local food pantry in Lehighton.

Door prizes are welcome. RSVP by Dec. 10 to (610) 377-2191. Please let the chamber know what food or beverage item you will be bringing.
