Monday, August 5, 2019 by ELSA KERSCHNER in Local News

Corin Watt greeted guests as they arrived for the recent Vacation Bible School at Christ’s Church at Lowhill.

As the theme for VBS was ROAR, the church was filled with animals both upstairs and downstairs.

The wooden animals were made by Watt’s brother-in-law, Roy Pickering, of New York.

Stuffed animals were brought to the church by the children, pictures were cut out from a large sheet of paper, and trees were purchased from Oriental Trading.

Charles Volk and Liesel Gross, of the Lehigh County Authority, brought some hope to Lynn Township supervisors.

They outlined the steps being taken to free up more EDU’s for houses waiting to be hooked up to the sewer system.

They will have another meeting at the township building sometime in the future.

Fire Chief Peter Christ noted that the fire company did not have a key for a dry hydrant in the town house development.

Firefighters would not be able to use the hydrant.

Gross said she would look into the matter and forward a key to the fire company.

Outside was the cemetery. Inside were displays of historical items at the Christ’s Church at Lowhill 250th anniversary celebration on July 27.

Some of the oldest headstones were found in the corner of the property directly behind the church.

Jim Bachman came from his home church at Lynnville because some of his ancestors were buried at Christ’s Church.

He spoke with Dale Watt, who is considered the cemetery historian.

Watt said there are many Civil War soldier graves but records do not go back that far.
