Allentown/Bethlehem Goose latest casualty of COVID-19

Thursday, May 14, 2020 by DEBBIE GALBRAITH in Local News

You see it on television – small businesses closing their doors due to the COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the nation. But it only happens in those other places, not your own neighborhood and not to someone who has become a friend to the community.

This friend, Dave Soska, owner of Allentown Bethlehem Goose, formerly Allentown Goose, was one of the first to say “yes” when a gift certificate was needed for a community fundraiser.

Yet when his business needed assistance due to COVID-19, help did not arrive.

Soska decided to close his business the first week of April.

Students participate in The Global Read Aloud Project

As part of The Global Read Aloud Project, seventh grade students at Salisbury Middle School connected with other middle school students globally by reading the same book.

The project was created in 2010 by Pernille Ripp “with a simple goal in mind; one book to connect the world. Now with many years under our belt and millions of connections made in more than 86 different countries, it is astounding to see the reach of this small idea.
