Passionate People Stepping up!
Passionate people are stepping up to the plate to highlight what the Hazleton Area has to offer and what it could offer in the future. News 13 has been telling you about the group, POWER, and Thursday night they launched their first gathering at Sand Springs in Drums. The group’s focus is to get businesses, residents, and people of all ages and backgrounds, together to make Hazleton beautiful again. POWER is being well received by businesses owners. Many new faces showed up to join in their mission to clean up the city and be proud of where they live. POWER will now meet at a different local restaurant on the last Thursday of every month. You can join them at Damon’s June 28th at noon and get more information on their first community project, which will be a clean up of the downtown on Saturday June 23rd at 8am in front of the Chamber Building. POWER members will be patronizing any local business that pledges to keep their properties cleaned up. Anyone with ideas or interests in helping the Hazleton Area move in a positive direction can contact POWER board members by friending them on Facebook, at Hazleton POWER or simply attend one of the events.
