I appreciate the coverage of Bacchanalia in your 11/28/18 edition by Tracy Rice. I have some clarifications if you could please print them in your next edition with the Fountain Hill coverage.

The Bacchanalia committee raised $11,500 at their annual event in 2018.

$2500 was donated to the Fountain Hill Little League

$9000 was donated to the Borough of Fountain Hill:

$4500 to the Recreational Improvement Fund

$4500 to the Lechauweki Restoration Fund

Our next event Bacchanalia XVI will be held on 4/6/2019.

Asking church, BES: Be good neighbors

Tuesday, November 27, 2018 by The Press in Opinion

To the editor,

I am writing in response to Gary Marsh’s letter to the Press this week regarding the homeless shelter run last winter by Bethlehem Emergency Sheltering at Christ UCC on Market Street. I am one of a group of neighbors who recently delivered a letter to Bethlehem City Council which described many troubling incidents that occurred last winter, and which Mr. Marsh denies actually happened.
