Submitted by GLORIA KOCH Earlier this year, several women from their crochet club discussed making mats out of plastic bags for the homeless. Little did they know that it would lead into a ministry of its own. Today they
have a group that gets together at the church every Tuesday morning from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to prepare the plastic bags to be crocheted by yet another group that meets the fourth Tuesday of every month.
The process started with collecting bags, as each mat takes approximately 600 bags to complete. Next, they started to prepare the bags - flatten, trim, cut, open, tie and roll into balls. Continued on page 3
East Allen Twp. discusses Sewer and Water issues
By KERI LINDENMUTH East Allen Township supervisors listened to a joint presentation on draft agreements for public sewer service with the City of Bethlehem and Hanover Township at their monthly Board of Supervisors meeting on Thursday, November 17. The public sewer service would be for a new Toll Brothers private development in the township. Currently, East Allen Township does not have its own sewer service or water authority. The Borough of Bath takes care of the township’s sewer, while the City of Bethlehem takes care of water. In this proposed public sewer service within the private development, the City of Bethlehem would carry out the sewage treatment system, while Hanover Township would maintain the pipes that transport the sewage. A pumping station would be located within East Allen Township. Such a partnership between the city and two townships is the most cost- effective way to provide public sewer service to the Toll Brothers development. East Allen Township would not be involved in the billing process. Instead, the City of Bethlehem would handle the billing of the customers and then bill the township for services. However, the city would also send a check to the township of revenue earned. This check would cover all expenses for the township, which means township residents would not incur any costs. The possible costs to residents seemed to be the biggest concern for supervisors, especially since the service is being performed for, what Supervisor Mark Schwartz called, “a private, for-profit develContinued on page 5

They soon realized the project was really in preparing the plarn (plastic yarn) and decided they could involve others from the church in the project. So in July, they began meeting at the church every Tuesday morning to make the plarn. The ladies really enjoyed the time of fellowship and have now prepared enough plarn to complete ten mats (over 6,000 bags). During the process the ladies made contact with a few organizations that work with homeless people where the mats could be donated to. They quickly realized the need and for now, have no plans to stop making them. It is with great honor that the first ten mats will be going to Franklin Homme, Commander of Disabled Veterans Lehigh Valley Chapter Seven. Homme works for the Department of Veteran Affairs, helping vets get back on their feet. This project has gotten so many
people involved, both inside and outside the church. They have several places that collect the bags for them. Lattemann’s Corner Store and Deli has a collection box as well with one of the mats on display. The Hair Hut in Walnutport has a young lady collecting bags for them as her service project. Several local stores allow them to collect from the recycled bag collection boxes as well. Making the plarn has several steps and takes long to make, so recently another church, Bender’s Mennonite in Pen Argyl, has gotten a group together to help make the plarn and plan to meet every other Monday from 12 until 3 p.m. at their church.
November 24-30, 2016 3
This project has branched out and has become a blessing to so many and they haven’t even reached their intended destination yet. Perhaps the only thing better is they haven’t incurred any cost for this project. However, if the group continues to grow they may need to find a couple heavyduty paper cutters. As long as there is a need for them and the help is provided, the mats will continue to be made.. If anyone would like to help by collecting bags, prepping or crocheting a mat, call MVW Church at 610-759-7553 and leave a message for Gloria Koch.

Nine ideas for Small Business Saturday Did you know that Small Business Saturday was created by American Express and launched on November 27, 2010? The idea was to encourage shoppers to visit their local small businesses. In 2011, the United States Senate passed a resolution to make Small Business Saturday official. By 2014, it is estimated that $14.3 billion was spent that day shopping at small businesses. By 2015, 95 million people went out to shop at small businesses on Small Business Saturday. According to Entrepreneur Magazine, there are between 25 million and 27 million small businesses in the U.S. that account for 60 to 80 percent of all U.S. jobs.
Small Business Saturday is November 26. How can a small business leverage that day?
1. The customers will come naturally, but it’s not too late to host a pop-up open house. Offer a complimentary glass of apple cider or mulled wine. 2. Create a holiday special for your regular customers. Give a bounce back coupon (if they return within a week they get $5 off the ir next purchase). 3. Host a special on a Monday each week. 4. Start the 12 Days of Christmas sale - feature a different item with a reduced price on twelve different days before Christmas day. 5. Sell gift cards on Small Business Saturday - buy a $50 card for $45 one day only. 6. Introduce a special that includes other businesses; if you buy something at “xyz” business, you get 10% off something at another business. 7. In 2017, consider launching a product of the month to drive folks into your business. (Beer of the month, coffee of the month, cheese of the month), give your customers something to look forward to. 8. Host a charity event at
Joe Chudyk Vented Kerosene Heating systems
your business; raise dollars for your favorite cause. 9. Always utilize social media to promote what’s happening at your small biz. Small Business Saturday- it’s this weekend in your town and it’s waiting for you to leverage this national day to make sure that something new and exciting is happening for your customers who have been directed through marketing to shop small.

opment.” “How do we secure it,” asked Joseph Piperato, township solicitor, “to a degree that…there are no circumstances” that would bring “costs” upon residents. Before the supervisors can make a decision, Roger Unangst, chairman of the Board of Supervisors, asked that those proposing the public sewer service gather all of the data and numbers they can on the project. “What data? What numbers? What are we going to be responsible for?” he asked. He requested they have the data compiled by the next Board of Supervisors meeting in December or, if they are not comfortable with such an early date, by January’s meeting. Supervisors also discussed other matters facing the township, including a Valley View/ UGI settlement agreement letter of credit, and a resolution for the change of indirect control of the franchisee under RCN, which all townships utilizing RCN’s services must pass. During the meeting, Township Manager Deborah Seiple
also mentioned that the township’s fall/winter newsletter has been mailed to residents. Extra copies are available in the municipal office. Finally, monthly reports were given. During its report, the East Allen Township Volunteer Fire Department announced that it will be holding a “dine and donate” fundraiser at the P.J. Whelihan’s Pub and Restaurant on High Point Boulevard in Bethlehem on Wednesday, December 28. From 11 a.m. to midnight, if diners mention they are there to support the fire department, the volunteer fire department will receive 15% of the proceeds. The next Board of Supervisors meeting will be held on Thursday, December 15.

Northampton Borough Council to advertise Proposed 2017 Budget By JUSTIN SWEITZER Northampton Borough Council announced at their most recent meeting that the tentative 2017 budget for the borough has been completed and will be advertised to the public before their next meeting. The budget, which was reviewed by each member of council before the meeting, was Borough Manager LeRoy Brobst's first budget as manager. Brobst received input from Councilman Robert McHale in the formation of the budget, as Brobst said he was hoping to pick the brain of former Borough Manager Gene Zarayko who died on Oct. 25, just five months after retiring from the position. “The budget proposed for 2017 will be, for the general fund, $6,570,107.00. This is an increase of 1.04 percent from last year. It will provide a closing balance of $610,600,” Brobst said, “This is the first time since 2006 that we have managed to project a closing balance of the state-recommended 10 percent.” “We are hoping to have a very comfortable year in 2017.” Brobst said. Councilman Ed Pany made a motion to advertise the budget 10 days in advance of their next meeting, to allow for public comment. Councilwoman Julia Kutzler seconded the motion. The council also approved a fundraiser request from the Dakota Galusha Memorial Fund Board of Directors to host the Ninth Annual Dakota Galusha Memorial Fund Basketball Tournament at the Northampton
November 24-30, 2016 5
Recreation Center. The tournament will be held from March 10 through March 12, 2017. The fund’s board of directors will be paying a rental fee for use of the basketball courts equaling $1,600. Jason Kremus, director of the recreation center, submitted a report estimating that the cheerleading competition sponsored by the recreation center on Nov. 6 raised a profit of over $10,000. The council also discussed upcoming holiday events with the borough. Councilman Tony Pristash announced the borough’s annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony will be held on Sunday, Nov. 27 beginning at 5:30 p.m. There will be appearances from Santa and Mrs. Claus at around 6 p.m. as well as a choir of students from Good Shepherd Catholic School who will perform Christmas carols as entertainment for those in attendance. Santa will also be helping deliver gifts for the Northampton Fire Department’s “Gift Drop Off Program” on Saturday, Dec. 17.

by HOME NEWS STAFF Members of the Bath Lions Club will be helping Bath Borough and other area residents celebrate Christmas when they decorate the borough’s naturally-growing evergreen at Monocacy Creek Park. They’ll put the light bulbs and other decorations on the limbs this Friday morning, Nov. 25. The public ceremony when the lights are turned on all around town will be on Sunday evening, November 27 starting at 6 p.m. At their recent meeting, club president Melissa Grube announced that $335 had been raised at a recent jewelry show. The money raised from the Premier Jewelry purchases and the Chinese auction donations will be combined with future fund-raisers to help a local family in need of eye care, provide experiences for Boy Scout Troop 33 and, in the future, help purchase a bench for the Bath Paw Park. In her report, she remarked to the people attending the show, “We are also in need of new members. If you are interested in protecting our environment, engaging our youth, fighting hunger, volunteering for natural disaster relief and making a difference in the community, we need you!” On Wednesday, she congratulated Lion Donald Halbfoerster for receiving a 40-year membership chevron from Lions International President Chancellor Robert Corlew. In his letter, Corlew said, “ Congratulations on completing 40 years as a Lion. Lions Clubs International recognizes the anniversaries of our members because they are a re-
minder of the milestones in our lives. They give us the opportunity to celebrate, commemorate and reflect on all the mountains we have
climbed together.” The chevron was presented by PDG Bill Halbfoerster, Lion Donald’s father. License # PA003267

Governor Wolf Historical Society Christmas House Tour
Heckman Home Submitted by BARBARA WIEMANN Known as the Daniel Steckel House, this two and a half story, cut stone Federal home was built in 1804. Daniel Steckel, the fourth son of Peter Steckel, was born September 1, 1767, in the family homestead in Egypt, now known as the Troxell-Steckel House. Daniel built the home for his wife Rebecca, on 56 acres purchased from his father-in-law Jessie Jones. It was here they raised six children. In addition to farming, Daniel ran a tannery just west of his home and, rumor has it, a distillery. He marketed his leather products in Philadelphia and New York City, where, perhaps, he got his grand ideas for his home. In March, 1982, the Daniel Steckel House was accepted on the National Register of Historic Places and the Pennsylvania Inventory of Historic Places. The home has 12 rooms, each 16' x 16', a center hall with staircase, seven corner Federal fireplaces and a large brick walkin fireplace. The house now contains a residence, antique shop, and bed and breakfast. Highlights are corner fireplaces, canopy beds, 25 foot kitchen with a working walk-in fireplace, tavern bar, and a marble bathroom with antique pull-chain water closet. Rooms
have been restored to their original colors and decorated to the period. The main hall has been hand-painted in the style of Rufus Porter, an itinerant artist who painted primitive murals from 1825 to 1845. Tour visitors can also view signatures on the walls from the 1800s and excavated artifacts that were probably used by the Steckel family. The first floor will be open for the tour, as well as the master bedroom and dressing room on the second floor. The Governor Wolf Historical Society’s Christmas House Tour will be held Saturday, December 3 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. House tour tickets are $20 if purchased in advance, or $25 on the day of the tour. Tickets are available for purchase at the following locations:

Catalyst for Thanks
God's character is the foundation upon which our faith rests and the catalyst for giving thanks at all times. "O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever" (I Chronicles 16:34); "...give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness" (Psalm 30:4); "It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name (character), O most High: To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night" (Psalm 92:1-2). In Psalm 119 we see that God's just and righteous nature inspires thanks and praise to God in difficult circumstances. Five times in Psalm 119 David refers to God's "righteous judgments" and other times he mentions that His judgments are "right" and "upright." The word "judgments" means "a verdict pronounced or a determination." David is acknowledging that God never has and never will make a mistake in His verdicts or decisions! This is cause for us to thank and praise God! "I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments" (vs. 7); "At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee because of thy righteous judgments" (vs. 62); "Seven times a day do I praise thee because of thy righteous judgments" (vs. 164). Knowing that God will always do right in every situation induces thanksgiving! "I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted, and the right of the poor. Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto thy name..." (Psalm 140:12-13). Thanking and praising God in the midst of hardships affirms that we believe God is just and right in all His actions! Job is a perfect example of this. After he had heard the terrible news that all of his possessions had been destroyed or taken from him and that all of his children were killed, he "worshipped, and said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord" (Job 1:20-21)!

Wolf Historical Society’s Christmas House Tour this year. The church, like St. John’s Lutheran, dates back a long time with the Bath Kirche. . . .I see the model train engineers over Stockertown way will be busy this weekend as they open their display for the Christmas season. I remember the big cars and engine I had as a kid. Their display is worth seeing with the different size trains and the huge amount of scenes that they create. . . . Congrats to Lyle Howell, as he joins a list of Bath Legion bowlers who have hit the “300 perfect game” mark this year. . . .The Lions Club members in town will be putting all the lights and decorations on the Monocacy Creek Park tree on Friday morning, just in time for the Christmas program Sunday night at 6:00. Sharon Schrantz will be directing the choirs in a “Bells of Christmas”program of songs starting at 4:00 Sunday in the U.C.C. fellowship hall, a great way to get into the holiday mood. . . . Seattle Seahawks took all the steam outta the Philly Eagles on Sunday, so it’s back to the drawing board.
