Although Hellertown kids missed out on traditional Easter fun in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in 2021 local volunteers are working hard so families will be able to enjoy free events featuring the Easter Bunny, candy and more.
The Hellertown-Lower Saucon Chamber of Commerce held a roundtable with local officials and small business owners Sept. 10 at Hellertown Borough Hall to discuss the state of bridges and transportation in the two municipalities.
Hellertown-area motorists and residents should expect road work to have eight streets temporarily closed on Friday, Sept. 25. According to a post on the borough’s Facebook page, the streets that will be closed for sealcoating are: Ellen Street, Henry Street, Spruce Street, Ackerman Street, Riegel Street, Bleyler Street, Burkhardt Street and Wagner Avenue. The affected roadways will be closed to both traffic and parking while the work is taking place, and parked vehicles will need to be removed from them by 7 a.m.
All affected roads will be posted with signs advertising the work on Wednesday.
Note: The following information was provided by the Borough of Hellertown. This holiday season the Borough of Hellertown is collecting various household and personal items to benefit the Lehigh Valley Outreach Depot–a charity that benefits local families.
The Lehigh Valley Outreach Depot (LVOD) is a huge warehouse staffed by volunteers who collect, organize and provide new and gently used household items for those in need. Clients who have been prescreened by a number of social service agencies, churches and schools as being deemed needy are allowed to come to the LVOD, only once, to select basic household items. The LVOD helps families affected by domestic violence, fire, natural disaster, transition and poverty. Some families have one or more family members with physical or mental handicaps.
