Neighbors get together in JT
VICTOR IZZO/SPECIAL TO THE TIMES NEWS There was plenty of covered seating with tables for the almost 300 neighbors, family, and friends attending Saturday's "Lehigh Street Block Party" in Jim Thorpe.
Great friends, great food, and great weather combined to make the 2010 "Lehigh Street Block Party" another neighborhood success story. The event took place Saturday in Jim Thorpe.
With plenty of covered seating, the hot July sunshine was no problem for the almost 300 neighbors, family and friends, and neighbors from years past who reunited to relax and reminisce with each other about days gone by.
The get-together was held for the third year in a row on the 600 block of Spring Street just off of Lehigh Street on the East side of town.
In addition to a wide and varied selection of food and beverages, there were games and entertainment for kids both big and small as well as live music.
Everyone who could, contributed in some way to making the event a success, either by bringing a covered dish or volunteering their time and labor to help out, and making a small donation to help cover expenses.
The 2010 "Lehigh Street Block Party" proved once again that the "Good Old Days" are alive and well when neighbors and old friends get together.
