Fire company receives new gear

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a delightful holiday season. Life and schedules will be returning to normal this week as kids go back to school and visiting family members leave to go back home.

Call it an early Christmas present. Or maybe an early birthday present. Either way, the 25 members of Station 19, Upper Milford’s Western District Fire Company, are starting off the new year in style – with new firefighting gear and nine new air packs, thanks to a $118,500 federal assistance to firefighters grant received late last year.

Happy New Year!

It’s hard to believe it is time to say farewell to 2016 and welcome 2017.

As I reflect personally on 2016, memorable for our family will be our granddaughter’s graduation from Hood College in Frederick, Md. and my milestone birthday celebrated at the Hotel Bethlehem. My nine-year-old grandson liked the Hotel Bethlehem so much he asked if we could always celebrate Grandma’s birthday there. Also memorable was my youngest daughter’s move from the Ridings in Macungie to a house in Lower Macungie Township.

Holiday season cues changes to municipal meeting schedules

I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving surrounded by family and friends. Now that the Christmas season is upon us in earnest, pay attention to changes in the scheduling of meetings.

Their re-organization meeting will be 7:30 p.m. Jan. 3, 2017.
