Harold Frey is recognized for his contributions

The Alburtis Borough Council meeting had one of the largest turnouts of all time July 31.

The meeting took place in the Alburtis Area Community Center to honor the retirement of a beloved member of the community Harold Frey, who recently closed Frey’s Country Store after 33 years of being in business.

Frey was given a standing ovation from the members of the audience as he was called to the front of the hall.

Author Chuck Wendig visits the Lehigh Valley

On July 1, the Bethlehem Area Public Library was buzzing with more excitement than usual. This was because the Let’s Play Books! bookstore in Emmaus hosted a pre-launch book reception for one of the most anticipated books of the year, Chuck Wendig’s “Wanderers.”

Wendig is a New York Times best-selling author, so it was no question his fans would flock to an opportunity to meet him. The event took place in the children’s section of the library and was open to the public for free.

Alburtis Borough Council members discussed payment for standard pipe services at its June 26 meeting

“All of the rehab work is done, the dig and replace is what is left,” Borough Manager Sharon Trexler told council.

“They did an air test on the pipes which held up nicely. It looks like the jobs are being done correctly and we’re getting a good result from it,” President Ronald DeIaco added. He then asked council for a motion to pay this bill, which was carried with a unanimous vote.
