Lehigh Township: Cherryville church plans basket social

Wednesday, October 4, 2017 by The Press in Columns

Many beautiful baskets will be raffled off at the 23rd annual fall basket social Oct. 13 at Hope Lutheran Church, 4131 Lehigh Drive, Cherryville.

The walk-in social will start 4 p.m., and the drawing will begin 7:30 p.m. Winners will be notified via phone that same evening.

Delicious homemade foods, baked goods and other refreshments also will be available.

The proceeds will benefit Hope Lutheran Church’s maintenance fund.

For more information, call the church office at 610-767-7203.


Free, monitored bicycle parking will be available during Walnutport’s canal festival, set for noon-5 p.m. Oct. 15. The parking area will be on Canal Street, near Main Street. The free parking is courtesy of Lehigh Township Rails to Trails.

While visiting the festival, stop by the Rails to Trails display. You can meet some of the group’s members, learn about the organization and pick up trail maps. You also can chat about the project at Indian Trail Park. To raise funds for that project, members will be selling shopping passes to Boscov’s for a cost.

For additional information, call 610 767-0676.


The Fabulous Fall Fest craft show will be held 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Oct. 28 at Bethany Wesleyan Church, 675 Blue Mountain Drive, Cherryville.
