A conditional approval of a warehouse at 840 Broad St. caused some lengthy discussion at the Emmaus Borough meeting May 20.
This plan, which has been in discussion for a year and a half, proposes the construction of a 12,000 square foot warehouse/light industrial building at a site known as the “Emmaus Commerce Center.”
The Ride for Freedom started as a way to show love and support for veterans at Bethany Church in Allentown. It has grown to include military families, supporters and riders from all over the Lehigh Valley, regardless of affiliation.
The volunteers ride out from Bethany Church to nearby community locations to meet the veterans supported with build projects. This is a community ride where riders come from all over.
The featured veteran this year was Bud Dillon.
