Specialized items, such as vintage clothing and handbags, 1940s and ‘50s pottery and Native American goods, will also be featured at this year’s event. An extensive collection of Bone China cups and saucers will be offered for sale, with the proceeds going to the church’s Stained Glass Window Fund. Hand-crafted gift items and Christmas decorations, as well as a delicious selection of homemade baked goods, will be offered by members of the church’s craft group.

Recreational Dam Release Weekend The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) announces Saturday and Sunday, July 20 and 21 as target dates for a Recreational Dam Release Weekend on the Lehigh River. In regulating the Francis E. Walter Dam, the USACE creates ideal whitewater rafting conditions by releasing hundreds of cubic feet per second of additional water into the river. Each year, the USACE collaborates with the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission and the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources to plan Fishing and Recreational Dam Releases in April through October. Rafters and kayakers eagerly anticipate the rush of riding through whitewater. Splash, swim and have a great time on the Lehigh!
