Memorial Day Service - ** REMINDER **

Don't forget - please join us at the Borough Hall at 1PM on Monday 5/26 for our Memorial Day Service.

There will be some light refreshments (Hot Dogs, Soda and ? ? ?) after the service.

Please come and honor our veterans, past, and present, who served our great country.

See you there!

Bike Rodeo - What a Day!

We had a nice turnout for our first ever Bike Rodeo. The kids who came out appeared to have a great time.

Thanks to the Tatamy Police Department, Chief Achenbach, Corporal Fred (sorry Fred, I'm not going to even attempt your last name - HA!); Colonial Regional Police Department, Nazareth Borough Police Department, Curt's Cyclery in Nazareth, and the rest of you who helped make our event a success (sorry, but I'm terrible with names so please forgive me).

The Express Times had a nice picture on their website tonite:

I know that Chief Achenbach took quite a few pictures today also, and I will post them here when he sends them to me.

Tatamy Bike Rodeo

Come one, come all to the first annual Tatamy Bike Rodeo this coming Saturday!

Main Street Bridge Update

Hot off the presses - it looks like PennDOT is FINALLY committing to repairing/replacing the Main Street bridge within, are you ready for this - the next three years. Well, at least that means something, right?

Anyway, Governor Rendell issued a press release today, announcing an accelerated bridge repair program under the "Rebuild Pennsylvania" umbrella. According to an article in the Express Times, bridges in Northampton County include:

three Route 191 spans, one each on routes 412 and 946, the Henry Road bridge in Bushkill Township and the Tatamy bridge across the Bushkill Creek.

Well, here's to hoping, anyway.

Tatamy's Trail May Expand

If you're like me, you enjoy walking on the Tatamy Trail. The Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor has partnered with Urban Research and Development from Bethlehem to explore the potential of connecting the existing trails such as ours in Stockertown, and Plainfield and Palmer Townships to the Appalachian Trail to the north, and Easton to the south.

The Morning Call has an article about it here.
