On September 8, 2018 the Lower Lehigh Lions Club conducted its Fall Flea Market in Macungie Park.  This event saw approximately 225 vendors fill the park with various items for sale.  The club worked Thursday through Saturday preparing for this big day.  On Saturday, these vendors started arriving at the park by 5:15 AM eagerly waiting to get checked in and start to set up their wares.  The Lions concession stand was open for business from 6:30 AM until 1:30 PM when many vendors were packing up.  This was a very special Flea Market for us because chairperson Lion Ron Bechtel would be "hanging up his chairmanship" following this event.  He has been at the helm for 16 years and now other members of the club will take over leadership roles for future Flea Markets.  We also thank Lion Dale Kuhns since he will also be retiring as the chairperson for the concession stand operation.  Both Ron and Dale will still stay involved with this and other club projects.  We thank all who contributed to the sucess of this Flea Market on Sept. 8.  Our 50/50 Raffle was also conducted on Saturday.  The winners will be announced on this site at a future time.
