Senator Scavello and the Lions Club are partnering to offer a FREE eye screening for children the ages of 6 months - 6 years old. Unless vision problems are detected early and corrected, they risk becoming permanent by age 7. The Lions Kidsight USA Program is a nationwide program that our local Lions Clubs are now introducing to communities. Education professionals state learning is 80% visual, therefore, it is important for every child to have their vision screened at an early age.
The FREE screening is scheduled for Thursday, July 14 from 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. at Senator Scavello's Pen Argyl District office, 2 North Robinson Avenue, Pen Argyl. Appointments are necessary. Call Senator Scavello's office at 610-863-1200 for the 10 minute appointment.
Saturday, June 11th 9:00am-12:00pm. For more information please click HERE

Northampton County Community & Economic Development recently partnered with the D.A.'s office, County Police Association and Sheriff's Department to install secure medicine collection boxes in 20 police departments throughout the County as well as at our County Courthouse. The medicine collection and destruction program will be available without charge thanks to a grant of $13,000 from the PA State District Attorney's Association.
Residents can anonymously dispose of unwanted medicines at police departments and the Sheriff's Office locations listed.
Law enforcement officials will turn over the collected medicines to the PA National Guard Counterdrug Joint Task Force (PA NG Task Force). The secure destruction services, including energy recovery, are being provided through the PA NG Task Force.
Drug addiction and misuse by adults and children harm public health. Improper disposal of medicines can impact water quality. Key objectives and benefits of the program include the following:
* Reduced access of medicines to children and adults, minimizing abuse potential
* Improved environmental quality through proper disposal
* Convenient box access to county residents
* Cost effective solution for NC residents through leveraging of PA DA grant and PA NG destruction resources
If you should have any questions about this program, please contact Ken Zinis at email@example.com

Do you know how important you and your love ones are? VERY IMPORTANT
Did you know that in the event of an emergency it makes the task of locating your home more of a challenge for ambulance, fire and police responders if they are unaware of where you live. A correctly posted house number could be the difference between life and death.
You should be aware that your house number needs to be conspicuously placed somewhere on your property as per Township Ordinance 95-7. You are required to restore or replace any number (s) that shall have been removed or destroyed.
Also, if your house is not visible from the roadway, because you live down a lane or have a long driveway, you should place some type of display that lists your house number at the beginning of the lane or driveway.
