Palmerton to be toasted at Centennial Dinner
Palmerton will be toasted at a Centennial Dinner later this month as it prepares to usher in its second century as a borough.
The Palmerton Area Historical Society will host the dinner on Tuesday, Sept. 25, at Blue Ridge Country Club in Palmerton. Social hour is at 6 p.m., with dinner at 7 p.m.
Those who attend can choose from a list of three entrées; chicken marsala, salmon and beef tenderloin tips. The cost for dinner is $35.
Peter Kern, a member of the Palmerton Area Historical Society, said the dinner will represent the end of a significant chapter in the history of the borough.
"It's a way for us to celebrate the end of our first century as a borough, and to begin our second century with an appropriate send-off to Palmerton," Kern said.
In addition, Kern said a silent auction will be held, with about a dozen attractive pieces up for grabs.
"We are fast approaching sold-out condition," he said. "We can only accommodate 150 people."

In Sept. of 2011, the Palmerton Area Historical Society hosted a kickoff dinner for the borough's Centennial.
The Centennial Celebration will be held on Sunday, Oct. 14. The borough was officially incorporated on Oct. 14, 1912.
