Pennsylvania Acting Secretary of Education Dr. William E. Harner stopped in the Lehigh Valley Aug. 15 to meet with school superintendents, administrators and school board members.

For 36 years, dollhouse and miniatures enthusiasts have gathered for their annual show, held this year July 14 at the Holiday Inn and Conference Center, in Breinigsville.
In 1978, Lehigh Valley "Small on Scale" began when the first dollhouse exhibit was held to raise money for Lehigh Valley Child Care.
Shortly thereafter a club was formed and they have continued to raise funds each year for charitable and educational purposes.
