Allentown Fire Chief Lee Laubach Jr. and Arson K-9, Judge, were the hot items on the agenda Feb. 1 at the monthly meeting of AARP Chapter 5415.
The fire safety presentation at St. Timothy’s Church, Allentown, provided the senior citizens with information on how Judge can actually sniff out a potential fire before it begins.
Judge demonstrated his skills by sniffing through a line of aluminum cans in search of the one containing an accelerant.
When Judge found the accelerant, he indicated the find to Laubach and was rewarded with a treat.
Several teachers of advanced placement courses at Salisbury High School were honored at the Feb. 21 curriculum and technology committee meeting. Honored were Joe Pacitti, AP Language and Composition; Katie Miller, AP US History; Michael Barna, AP World History; Susan Wilson, AP Biology, Carla Pacitti, AP Literature and Composition; John Wagner, AP Calculus and Sherry Wetherhold, AP Computer Science Principles and AP Computer Science A.
