The community food bank, operated by Coplay Recreation & Welfare Association in the basement of borough hall, will be open 8:30-10 a.m. Oct. 10. Among the more immediate needs, food pantry volunteers say they need donations of rice, fruit cups, potatoes, macaroni and cheese, peanut butter and jelly.

The upcoming youth basketball and cheerleading programs will be on the agenda.

A crowd favorite, East Hills Middle School Band and Front, will again be in the line of march at the Oct. 17 Halloween parade, held annually by Coplay Recreation & Welfare Association.

Certainly leading the musical organizations will be Whitehall High School’s Marching Zephyr Band.
