Newspaper drive

The men and boys of St. John's Lutheran Church will hold their monthly newspaper drive on Saturday, July 2.

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 brown grocery size 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, which is always open.

In case of bad weather, the drive will be held the following Saturday.

Park concert

The Lehigh Valley Italian-American Band will perform at 7 p.m., Sunday, July 3, in the Palmerton Borough Park Bandstand. Bring a lawn chair.

In the event of rain, the concert will be held in the Palmerton Borough Hall, 443 Delaware Ave.
