Thursday, April 18, 2013 by ELSA KERSCHNER in Local News

Don Eckhart, festival committee chair, opened the Pastorius Home Association's Winter Vanquish festival in the social hall of the Goodwill Fire Company, Germansville, on April 7.

Eckhart said he was glad to see all the smiling faces.

"Let's begin with a circle waltz," said Walt Groller, the musician who has brought his band to every one of the festivals. "Everyone has to sway from side to side.

"We've got a little song called 'No Beer Today.' The governor stopped Sunday sales and we kept playing that song. Eventually another governor allowed the sales."

Upper Macungie discusses future of Green Hills Park

Thursday, April 18, 2013 by KENNETH BLEILER Special to The Press in Local News

Several residents of the Kay Brook Green Hills development attended the April 8 Upper Macungie supervisors meeting.

The Kay Brook Green Hills Community Association is being disbanded, so the future of Green Hills Park along Russett Road is in question.

President of the Kay Brook Green Hills Swim Club Michael Sicinski told supervisors the club would take over the 2.7 acre park, invest in new playground equipment and keep it open, if the township would provide maintenance, including grass cutting and garbage collection.
