Curbs go yellow

Everyone is seeing yellow at intersections across Coplay.

Borough public works employees did the painting as a safety measure by marking no-parking zones. A secondary benefit is that it provides the community with a fresh look.

Some are saying the yellow paint appears brighter than what has been the case in previous years.


With summer moving along faster than most would want, the borough parkway pool continues to attract children and adults in larger numbers than last year. Attendance is boosted by two bus loads of children from day care centers. In addition, most municipal pools shut down in mid-August but the parkway pool will remain open through the end of August, open during the Community Days weekend celebration.


Coplay Recreation and Welfare Association is again sponsoring a back-to-school project. This has turned out to be a ritual for children returning to class in the fall.

The project provides school bags, pencils, crayons, ruler, tablets and other items for students, kindergarten through 12th grade. For more information call 484-554-8626.

School begins Sept. 3, following the Labor Day holiday.


Coplay Garden Club's meeting on Thursday, July 31, has on its agenda "Creating a Succulent Wreath." Debbie DeSousa will lead the program. The public is welcome. The club meets at St. John's Lutheran Church Hall on South Third Street. The program begins at 7 p.m.
