As we move closer to the holidays, the Chamber’s calendar typically begins to fill up with more events, fundraisers and holiday fun, and 2021 is no different. So, when and where can Hellertown residents expect to see the Chamber in the borough again?
The Hellertown-Lower Saucon Chamber of Commerce is hosting a small business roundtable next Wednesday, Oct. 13 at Black River Farms. The Chamber will be joined by Nancy Dischinat, Executive Director of Workforce Board Lehigh Valley, who will be talking about how to best market job opportunities.

A newly-expanded free summer concert series in Hellertown’s Dimmick Park will begin on Sunday, June 11, with a performance by the popular ’60s and ’70s revival band The Large Flowerheads at 6 p.m. at the bandshell.
Dozens of Saucon Valley business and civic leaders and elected officials attended the 93rd annual Hellertown Lower Saucon Chamber of Commerce banquet at Silver Creek Country Club Thursday, at which Heintzelman Funeral Home president and supervisor David Heintzelman received the chamber’s Community Commitment Award, and Frey’s Better Foods owners Bruce and Diane Haas were recognized with the chamber’s Small Business Leadership Award. Heintzelman is a member of the National Funeral Directors Association and twice past president of the Eastern Pennsylvania Funeral Directors Association, but in Hellertown he’s best known for his civic involvement as chairman of the annual Saucon Valley Spirit Parade, chairman of the Dimmickfest celebration (formerly Second Sunday concerts in the park), past president of the Hellertown Lions Club, and a force behind the planning of this year’s 100th anniversary Dewey Fire Company Carnival. Speaking at the dinner, he credited his friends and family with supporting him throughout his career, which began in the Saucon Valley in 1984. “I could not have done any of this without your support,” Heintzelman said. He noted that his family–including his wife, Nancy; daughters Sara, Abby, Laura and Emily; parents; and brother–have “made many, many sacrifices for me.”
