John Domitrovits, known as Johnny D for the polka band he led for decades, passed away April 12.

The popular musician and band had their own brand, with Domitrovits playing the saxophone.

Domitrovits was a mainstay at Coplay Community Days for more than three decades.

Loved by his fans and the public, Domitrovits played in halls across the region. Retiring approximately three years ago, he would at times sit in with the Josef Kroboth Band and Walt Groller.

Over the years, Domitrovits attended many Whitehall High School basketball games and was an ardent Yankees fan.

Raised in Coplay, he resided in the Hokendauqua area of Whitehall Township.


The solar-powered digital speed signs that show motorists the speed they are traveling are back on South Second and Chestnut streets, near Sixth Street.

Residents living near these devices say drivers actually do slow down when they see the signs.


Reminder: The Community Days committee will meet 7 p.m. April 24 in council chambers at borough hall.
