Coplay: St. John’s plans takeout dinner

Wednesday, May 20, 2020 by The Press in Columns

St. John’s Lutheran Church, 18 S. Third St., is having a chicken barbecue dinner 4-6:30 p.m. May 30. The dinner is takeout only.

Reservations are not required but can be made by calling Karen Haines at 610-653-2816.


Coplay Recreation and Welfare Association has gone outdoors with its food pantry. The association has set up tables outside borough hall, 98 S. Fourth St., this week for its 34 clients.

The move outdoors is prompted by the lockdown of the borough hall caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Rick Hess, association president, said there has not been an increase in clients on its rolls. However, the food bank is in need of restocking. Items needed include pasta and canned vegetables, soup and tuna.


The borough is not opening the Parkway pavilion for picnics, graduation parties or other events until it receives notice from the governor’s office that it can do so.
