Final concert nears
The popular Catasauqua Borough summer concert series is coming to a close. The final concert, sponsored by S.J. Thomas, is scheduled for Sept. 10 and will feature The Roulette Band.
The free concerts take place 7-10 p.m. Friday nights at the amphitheater at Catasauqua Park and Playground, 501 American St.
Each concert has a sponsor and features a 50/50 raffle and concession stand sales to help support the park and the municipal pool.
The most recent concert was held Sept. 3, when Toga Party Band entertained the crowd. Barry Isett and Associates was the sponsor for the concert.
The 50/50 raffle prize winner was Jane Fritts. Sebastian, Sophia and Emalina picked the winning ticket.
GirlCrue was the featured concert Aug. 27. That concert was sponsored by Brosky Insurance.
James Supra and the Ayers Band entertained the crowd Aug. 20. The show was sponsored by Working Dog Press.
The evening was impressive, and the crowd reportedly numbered more than 500 happy fans. Catasauqua Mayor Barbara Schlegel brought in the treat cart for the kids to enjoy.
Schlegel’s grandchildren, Connor and Emma, drew the winning 50/50 ticket, and Jeff Miller gave his winnings to support the new park plan.
Lehigh Valley-based Flirtin’ with the Mob performed Aug. 13. The concert was sponsored by Miller Supply Ace Hardware.
The smooth-running concerts are a tribute to Jeff Miller and his parks and recreation staff members.
Once again, the 50/50 raffle was a popular feature of the event. Experienced raffle pickers Elena and Luke chose the winning ticket. Debbie Toth was the big winner.
