A fun day is in store for everyone who plans to attend Hellertown Community Day this Saturday, Aug. 19, when sunny skies and a high of 77 degrees are expected.
The free annual event will be held in the borough’s Dimmick Park from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will feature vendors, food/concessions, musical performances, live demonstrations, giveaways, children’s activities, a mobile blood drive and much more.
The community blood drive is being sponsored by the Saucon Valley Lions Club, who will have a registration area set up under a red umbrella, according to a post shared on the Community Day Facebook page. The blood drive is from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and appointments can be scheduled online.
Another community day highlight will be music by the band Flirtin with the Mob, who will perform on the park stage from noon to 3 p.m.
Volunteers are needed to help set up Community Day starting at 8 a.m., as well as with parking, trash removal and other jobs. To volunteer, call 610-838-7041 or email d.***********@he***************.org.
