2019 Family Easter egg hunt


Community spirit Robert Jones, member of the culinary crew at Zion Lutheran Church in Tamaqua, presents a check for $2,000 to Jason Hartz, chief of Citizen’s Fire Company in Tamaqua. Zion’s outreach team and culinary crew decided to do a benefit ice cream social for Citizen’s which could not have its annual block party this summer due to the downtown construction project. The money was raised through the social and donations from individuals, businesses and Zion’s outreach fund. With Hartz are fellow Citizen’s members, Jason Green, captain; Francis Betz, lieutenant; Austin Bennage, firefighter; and  (rear) Josh Holmberg, firefighter. Members of Citizen’s assisted Zion’s culinary crew in the kitchen and dining area during the social. Hartz expressed his appreciation for the church’s support.
