Nina Johnson of the Greater Lehigh Valley Red Cross, and Red Cross volunteer Bill Slotter shared emergency preparedness information with Upper Milford Township supervisors at their May 16 meeting, emphasizing how emergency shelters are set up.
During the power outages following Hurricane Sandy last year, multiple shelters were set up in the Lehigh Valley, Johnson said, including several not too far from Upper Milford at Emmaus High School, Eyer Junior High School and Lower Milford Elementary School.
Dennis Timmer, president of the parks and recreation board, praised Denise Foulke and others for the Lower Macungie Community Day event via a letter read at the May 16 meeting.
"Judging the year-to-year improvement and attendance over the last three years, it does get better." There might be a possibility of it becoming a full-day event with more vendors. Parks and Recreation board members extended their appreciation for a job well done to Foulke and all others involved. Medevac and two state police cars were also on hand which were a big attraction for all in attendance.
