Palmerton Lions Club will meet at 7 p.m. Monday, June 6, at the Blue Mountain Community Service Center. Region Chairperson Liz McElwee will review the Community Needs Assessment with members. In addition, a program in memory of "Colby" the hearing dog is planned.

Community members are also asked to donate used eyeglasses at Houser Newman Eye Associates, Walters Optemetric, First National Bank, Citizens Bank, all located on Delaware Avenue in Palmerton and/or the Palmerton Area High School located on Fireline Road.
