Chief Allen Stiles has announced he is working with the Salisbury School District to ensure this year's trick or treat event scheduled for 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 26 is a fun and safe one.
Stiles said key intersections will be manned by the police department to facilitate crossing of ghosts and other creatures. He asked residents to observe some of the common sense rules for this event, including:
Make sure your child's clothing is flame retardant. Review the stop-drop-roll exercise in case a costume catches on fire.
Renew Lehigh Valley will hold a series of public meetings to engage the residents of the Lehigh Valley in a regional planning project called Envision Lehigh Valley. The public meetings will garner residents' views and input on the overall quality of life in their neighborhood and the greater Lehigh Valley and engage the residents of the Lehigh Valley in an integral planning process for the future of the community.
Salisbury Township School Board President Russell Giordano said he was "thrilled" to introduce Michael Roth as the district's new superintendent at a special meeting Oct. 3.
Roth, who is currently an assistant superintendent in the Nazareth Area School District, will take over for Interim Superintendent Louise Beauchemin Nov. 1.
