Good morning, Bethlehem. Today is Wednesday, Aug. 21, 2013 and it’s going to be a hot one.
The National Weather Service says it will be sunny and the temperature should top out at about 90 degrees. It will be humid too. In fact, there could be patchy fog before 9 a.m.
Here's what's going on today:
- If your daytime errands take you out along Wyandotte Street/Route 378, be warned that milling and paving from Broadway to Black River Road in Lower Saucon Township was scheduled to continue today. Lane closures and flagging will mean the trip will take extra time.
- The Bethlehem Area Public Library main branch has “One Book Celebration Day,” all day from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Fitting for the season, the book is “The Bus For Us,” by Suzanne Bloom, which tells the story of Tess waiting for the bus for her first day of school. There will be readings of the book on the hour and a chance to win a copy.
- Now there are only five days until the start of public and Catholic school classes in Bethlehem. Though if you have a little one getting ready to start Kindergarten, there is orientation at Thomas Jefferson Elementary School, and a “play date” at Governor Wolf Elementary School. Donegan Elementary hosts orientation for SPARK students.
- A documentary about children from China adopted by American parents will be shown at Wesley United Methodist Church, 2540 Center St., at 6:30 p.m. Somewhere Between tells the story of four adopted teenagers who attempt to answer the question “Who am I?” according to the documentary's website. A discussion facilitated by Jean Barney, of Families Caring for Children, will follow. The film is being presented by Families Caring for Children Inc., in partnership with Families with Children from China-Lehigh Valley chapter.
- Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted is the free movie being shows at the Levitt Pavilion SteelStacks at 8 p.m. Melman the Giraffe are still fighting to get home to their beloved Big Apple and of course, King Julien, Maurice and the Penguins are all along for the comedic adventure. Their journey takes them through Europe where they find the perfect cover: a traveling circus, which they reinvent - Madagascar style.
