If you would like to see a loved one from Hellertown or Lower Saucon Township recognized for their military service as part of the Saucon Valley Hometown Heroes Banner Program, there is currently another opportunity to do that.
Lower Saucon Township Police are investigating the theft of a number of flags from a property in the 2200 block of Easton Road, which they say occurred sometime between 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 8 and 2:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 9.
Just in time for Memorial Day weekend, when the service of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice defending America are honored, the Borough of Hellertown has hung nearly 50 Hometown Hero banners that honor its own.
Boy Scout Troop 364 has announced that it is collecting old, tattered and soiled U.S. flags for a formal retirement ceremony on Tuesday, Nov. 10 at 7 p.m. at Southern Lehigh Living Memorial Park (under the flagpole) at Rt. 309 and Fairmount Street in Coopersburg. The public is invited to attend the ceremony. Please place flags you would like to have retired in collection bins at the Hellertown post office, 660 Delaware Ave., Hellertown, and the Hellertown Area Library, 409 Constitution Ave., Hellertown.
