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.

What does the American flag mean to me?

American flag you mean so much to me

Like freedom, peace, and liberty.

I have a flag folded in a triangle display

That I walk by and look at everyday.

This flag belonged to a special man

Who wasn’t afraid to fight in a foreign land.

So many soldiers lost their lives over the years

The flags draped over their coffins soak up the tears.

I am proud to live in a country that’s free

Final approval granted to Depot Properties

On June 20, the Lower Macungie Township Board of Commissioners met to finalize plans for Depot Properties at 7284 Orchard Road.

This development which is 36 1/2 acres will be a 28,500 square foot truck staging facility which will include a building and fueling station as well as an access driveway, parking areas, utilities and related stormwater management which is significant since the creek runs through the property.
