Church raises funds for library

Wednesday, June 12, 2019 by PAUL CMIL Special to The Press in Local News

Holy Trinity Memorial Lutheran Church held a taco and baked potato bar fundraiser for the Public Library of Catasauqua May 18 at its fellowship hall, 604 Fourth St.

“All the money we collected, we donated to the library,” Pastor Brian Riedy said.

The event had a bigger-than-expected crowd.

Rebecca Gillespie from Blondies prepared specialty desserts and her famous cupcakes.

The baked potato bar included all the expected toppings.

Tacos started out as hard shell and then went to soft shell as the evening wore on.

No one went away hungry.
