Just down the road, at Calvary Weslyan Church, plans are being made for a live performance of three contemporary worship and Christian rock bands 7 p.m. Friday, May 23. The public is invited to this free concert.

· REZ Ministries a.k.a. Rob E. Zweifel Music Ministry's promotes Christianity, primarily through the arts, with an emphasis on music in worship. They perform in churches, coffeehouses and bookstores, as well as outdoors and at other venues.

· The Bethany Project is made up of musicians from Bethany Wesleyan Church located in Cherryville. They are the regular worship band for the family service there, and have been close friends for many years.

· The b-Attitudes are a melodic, guitar-based, Lehigh Valley alternative power rock band, in the vein of FooFighters, Cheap Trick, Collective Soul and Stone Temple Pilots but their lyrics are penned in a Christian hand.

A free-will offering will benefit youth and children's ministries at the church.


Hanover Township Lehigh County officials contacted The Press to help clear up some confusion by residents as to where they will be voting in the spring primary election and thereafter. An article in another Lehigh Valley media stated incorrectly that voting would take place at the township municipal building, rather than at the Han-Le-Co Fire Station, where it has taken place for the last two years. They submitted the following statement:

"Residents of Hanover Township, Lehigh County, should be advised that the Lehigh County Election Board has determined that the voting place for the township will be the township's fire station, Han-Le-Co Volunteer Fire Co. No. 1, 1001 Postal Road, Allentown.

"The election board's reasoning in making the determination related most specifically to safety concerns since the township's fire station access is from a signalized intersection, as opposed to the municipal building on Grove Road which is accessed from Airport Road and is not signalized. Safety issues in both coming to and leaving the polling place in the heavy traffic on Airport Road, which is anticipated to worsen as time goes on, lead the election board to the decision.

"It was also noted in the board's discussions that the township fire station provides a central location for voting activity, compared to the municipal building.

"Township officials say they feel the election board acted responsibly n this matter and are grateful to them for doing so."
