Laflin Summer Rec Camp Canceled for Second Year

Summer Rec Camp, along with the Community-wide Sponsored Yard Sale event and the Memorial Day Ceremony, have been canceled again this year due to coronavirus concerns. While the vaccines are being rolled out there are still too many health concerns to have a large camp or public gatherings.

Laflin Borough Council voted to cancel the upcoming events. However, this does not affect residents who may want to hold their own yard sale events through the summer.
