Eckhart & D'Amore to Duel at Coplay Coke Wagon

Get this. This Friday through Sunday, the Coplay Town Watch is actually sponsoring a coke wagon at Sam's Club in Whitehall. You read me right - Coplay is selling coke. The Coplay Town Watch is the parent organization of Coplay's Neighborhood Watch and an assortment of committees for feral cats, "Properties of Merit," Childrens' Bike Derby, Sunday Watch Walk and National Night Out.

Lehigh County Commissioner Bill Leiner is even looking for volunteers willing to commit two hours of their time. "We have sponsored the 'Wagon' for about 10 years. It truly is a fun weekend." I'll bet. I wonder if volunteers get any free coke.

Open times are as follows:

Friday, 6/20 - 2 pm to 4 pm, and 4 pm to 6 pm.
Saturday, 6/21 - 4 pm to 6 pm
Sunday, 6/22 - Noon to 2 pm

If you can assist, please email Bill at Billleiner@aol.com. If you can't volunteer, Bill still asks that you "consider stopping by and partying with some of the great folks helping to make Coplay a ... safer, better and cleaner community."

The highlight of Coplay's coke wagon will be a Sunday duel between Lehigh County Commissioner Glenn Eckhart and Allentown City Council prez Mike D'Amore. They'll be using standard revolvers issued to Lehigh County Deputy Sheriffs, so it's considered unlikely their weapons will actually fire. Echart's second, Commissioner Dean Browning, predicts, "I think they'll just pistol whip the shit out of each other." Originally set for Friday, the contest had to be rescheduled because Eckhart refuses to drive through Allentown.

Bernie,

I read this to my wife. You got me belly laughing. You are one ill man. Make sure you stop by the wagon this weekend. It'll be great to see you. I'll give you the Sam's Club employee discount. The dogs are selling for 99 cents to the general public. Sam's Club employees get their dog for 98 cents. If Dean shows up we'll sell him one for 97 cents........
