Coplay: Parkway Pool plans family event tonight
There is a family splash and dance night this evening, Aug. 17, at the borough’s Parkway Pool. Freddie Frederick Jr. will host the party with music and games from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
The previous event was shortened when a storm rolled in.
Munchkin Music with Miss Deb is 4 p.m. today, Aug. 17, at Coplay Public Library, Fifth and Center streets.
Also, Wildlands Conservancy will visit the library 11 a.m. Aug. 19.
Parkway Pool will be open during Community Days Aug. 25-27 with a free swim noon-6 p.m. Aug. 26 and a family fun event noon-4:45 p.m. Aug. 27.
After taking off for the summer, American Club of Coplay will resume its popular hoagie sale in September.
With no food drives underway or in the works in the near future, Coplay Recreation & Welfare Association is looking for donations of canned fruit, fruit cups, rice, potatoes, macaroni and cheese and more for its annual food pantry.
The association’s annual fund drive is also underway.
While not setting a goal, members say the drive yields an average of $5,000. This is the group’s sole source of income.
The association will continue with all its programs, ranging from the Halloween parade to other holiday events.
Sidewalk superintendents at the Coplay-Northampton Bridge project say there still is not an office construction trailer at the site. There has, however, been daily activity by Verizon on both sides of the bridge.
