Couple honored for volunteer service

There is a new sign in Lenape Park as of this month; it says “Parry Pavilion” and it marks a pavilion dedicated to Roselyn and Robert Parry, in recognition of more than five decades of volunteer service to the township.

The Parrys were both present at the recreation commission meeting June 17 when the sign was unveiled. Prior to the meeting, Roselyn commented that “something must be going on” because there was a larger crowd in attendance than usual.

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.

In our coverage of the Emmaus Flag Day program in the June 26 edition of The Press, we noted Marge Heatley as being the Woman’s Club of Emmaus Flag Day president. She is president of the Emmaus Flag Day Association. Pat Stasko and Pat Waller are co-chairs of the Woman’s Club of Emmaus’s Flag Day Committee. The Woman’s Club of Emmaus’s Flag Day Committee is passing the Emmaus Flag Day program to the Emmaus Rotary Club. The program is not being discontinued but being carried on by the Emmaus Rotary Club. We apologize for the errors.
