Summer is here, and so are the pollinators! Lois Prytherch, a Pennsylvania master gardener and a new beekeeper, will discuss the joys, successes and difficulties of becoming a new beekeeper for Catasauqua Garden Club. The buzz will start 1 p.m. July 5 at Slovak Center Social Club, 1233 Fifth St., North Catasauqua.

Horticultural and artistic design exhibits should be set up early as not to disturb this honey of a program.

Light refreshments will be available.


Save the date for the Catasauqua High School Class of 1966’s “just because we’re getting older” picnic Sept. 16 at North Catasauqua Park.

A catered picnic menu, the event is BYOB.

The price of the picnic will follow in the near future.
