Around the 40th District

Students from several of our area schools took part in this year’s statewide “What’s So Cool About Manufacturing” video contest hosted by the Manufacturers Resource Center. 

WSCM is a series of 12 annual, regional video contests in which middle-school students across Pennsylvania explore manufacturing careers and produce video profiles of companies. For the first time this year, winners from each region competed against one another for statewide awards. 

Nazareth Middle School students took part in the contest and visited the Capitol this week, where they were recognized for their outstanding work.

Nazareth joined three other school districts from the 40th Senatorial District in the competition – Bethlehem, Northampton and East Stroudsburg South.

Bethlehem Northeast took the first place spot state-wide!

All of our students did a great job highlighting our region’s manufacturers and helping further student interest in manufacturing as a lifelong career path. You can view all of their video entries here.

This week we joined current and retired Pennsylvania State Police of Troop N for their annual memorial service to honor those who gave their lives in the line of duty. They paid the ultimate price for our safety. Thank you to those who have served and who continue to serve with distinction and courage. We owe you a debt of gratitude.

You Can Sign Up Emergency and Weather Alerts

Lower Your Risk for Skin Cancer

May is National Skin Cancer Awareness Month, targeting the nation’s most common form of cancer.

This month is dedicated to increasing public awareness of the importance of skin cancer prevention, early detection, and treatment, including basal cell, squamous cell, and melanoma. Sun exposure and tanning cause most cases of melanoma, the deadliest kind of skin cancer. People with fair skin, freckling or light hair face higher risk. Learn how to lower your risk.

2018-19 Hunting Seasons Approved by PA Game Commission

The Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners recently gave final approval to hunting and trapping seasons and bag limits for the 2018-19 license year.
