?    Austin High School students are already planning their annual tribute to veterans past and present on Tuesday, November 11.
    This year’s program is scheduled for 1 p.m. in the school auditorium, advised history teacher Ryan Herald, who organizes the event each year.
    Veterans or their families may bring photos of those to be honored to the high school office through Friday, November 7. These new photos will be scanned and added to others collected over the years. “If veterans’ photos are already in our collection, they don’t need to bring them in again. We’ll prepare them for the program,” advised Herald.

?Autumn on the River Festival to be held October 18 and 19 in historic Bethlehem PDF Print E-mail

?    The crisp morning air is a sure sign of Fall. Local citizens are gearing for the trees to change to their beautiful reds, golds and oranges, another true sign that Fall is here.
    Local stores and family produce markets have bright orange pumpkins in all shapes and sizes ready to become your jack-o-lantern to welcome trick-or-treaters to your door this Halloween.
    Some citizens have even started decorating for the season with mums in their beautiful yellows and  reds and lavenders with bales of hay and scarecrows and witches.
    Another true sign of the Fall is the annual Autumn on the River Festival in historic Bethlehem. The festival, in its 16th year, was threatened three years ago. The volunteers organizing the event were becoming small in numbers and the festival was becoming too much.
    Co-Chairs of the festival, Andi Oles and David Abbott, have taken reigns of the festival and seen record numbers in the past two years in attendance and vendors.
    “We have really enjoyed helping with this festival. I am always ready for the festival weekend. It’s nice to see everyone bring their family and spend a day in Bethlehem and truly enjoy themselves,” Abbott stated.
