Summer closes with American Club picnic

By all accounts summer is unofficially over in Coplay.

Community Days is in the past. The borough parkway pool is officially closed. St. Peter's large family picnic is a now a memory. Another National Night Out program ended and picnics by the dozens have been held.

Placing a further exclamation mark on summer's ending is the American Club of Coplay's annual family picnic, which was held Saturday. It was a smashing success.

Borough asks residents to display flags Sept. 11

As the Borough of Coplay joins with the nation next Tuesday in remembering the thousands of lives lost on Sept. 11, borough officials are asking residents to display U.S. flags.

Flags can be small or large and flown on porches or lawns. Fewer flags have been flown each passing year since the tragedy.

Although the borough no longer has luminaria packages available, the Sept. 11 project "Light Up Your Neighborhood" continues.

Residents need only a paper bag, candle and sand or litter to balance the candles. Place them in front of the home or walkway as dusk sets in.
