Canal cleanup scheduled

The Catasauqua Canal cleanup has been scheduled for Saturday, April 20 from 9 a.m. until noon.

All volunteers will be provided with gloves, high visibility orange safety vests and bags for the trash and brush cleanup effort. Some will be given cutting implements, on loan from D&L, to trim low branches and invasive plants.

Beverages and light snacks will be provided.

As in prior years, anyone who wants to focus cleanup efforts in the downtown or the park system may do so. Those interested in joining the effort should meet at the Old Deily Coal Yard on the corner of Canal and Union streets by 9 a.m.

Contact borough Councilman Vincent Smith with any questions you may have. The borough's administrative office phone number is 610-264-0571.

The borough is hoping for a great turnout.


Bingo will be held at St. Mary's Parish Center, Second and Union streets, Sunday, April 14, beginning at 1 p.m.

The kitchen will open at 11:30 a.m. Takeout is available.

Plan on an afternoon of fellowship, fun and fine food and beverages, and don't forget to bring along a friend.

The event is sponsored by the Assembled Men of St. Mary's. For more information, call 610-264-0332.


Remember, the Arbor Day Celebration is scheduled for 10 a.m. April 27 at the main pavilion in the Catasauqua Park.
