Swain student donates birthday party to charity

Thursday, April 5, 2018 by AARON BERGER in School

Carly Kudryk, a prekindergarten student at The Swain School, Salisbury Township, turned 5 on Feb. 21.

She celebrated her birthday in a unique way March 10 at Revolutions, Bethlehem, by donating her party to charity.

She was inspired by a campaign called “BirthdayBack,” a program started by Tyler Fazzari of Long Island, N.Y.

In 2012, after Hurricane Sandy, Tyler wanted to donate his 8th birthday to a charity that helped hurricane recovery efforts, which some of his own family were personally affected by.

Walk around shows little work needed at rec fields

Wednesday, March 21, 2018 by ELSA KERSCHNER in School

As seven members of the Northwestern Recreation Commission and Northwestern Youth Athletic Association met for their annual walk around of the fields, they agreed there should not be much work needed.

A broken picnic table under the pavilion was the first damage noticed and this was considered intentional.

Two round tables by the playground equipment look new but Justin Smith of Lynn Township said they have been at the recreation fields four years without painting.
