Earth Day cleanup project postponed by bad weather
An "Earth Day" event in Lehighton scheduled for Sunday didn't get the cooperation of Mother Nature and had to be postponed.
The Lehighton Downtown Initiative Committee had planned a clean-up in the Lehighton Borough Park; especially in the vicinity of the fountain.
Todd Zimmerman, coordinator of the event, said the clean-up will instead occur next Sunday, April 29, beginning at noon.
He said anyone interested in participating should contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Zimmerman said gloves, vests, and trash bags will be provided. If anyone can bring a rake for the parks, that would be appreciated.
The Downtown Initiative Committee has several other upcoming events scheduled. They include:
* Lehighton Community Days, May 18 and 19 - This two-day event will be held at the Community Grove and feature Metz Carnival Rides.
* The LDIC Lehighton Downtown Amazing Race, May 19, beginning at 9 a.m. The course is a minimum of four to five miles.
* 14th Annual Lehighton Bike Night, Saturday, Aug. 11, noon to 8 p.m. around the downtown parks. For more information contact email@example.com.
