Newspaper drive

The men and boys of St. John's Lutheran Church will hold their monthly newspaper drive on Saturday, Nov. 3. 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. They also need grocery size brown paper bags. The shiny inserts are acceptable.

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. There will be no collection in December.

Knitting Club

From 6-8 p.m., Monday, Nov. 5, the Knitting Club will meet at the Palmerton Area Library. The club is for all area residents interested in knitting, crocheting, and other crafts. New members are always welcome. The club meets the first and third Monday of the month.

Preschool Story Hour

Preschool Story Hour continues at the Palmerton Area Library, and will be held at 10:30 a.m. on each Friday through the school year. The programs are free, and there is no preregistration. All are welcome.
