On another holiday note, Bob Boehmer, chairman of the Emmaus Arts Commission, shared with council his latest Emmaus holiday painting that again is being used to create holiday cards. He said it is the eighth painting in the series. All the paintings are hanging in Emmaus Town Hall.

Boehmer said he focused on “a hidden treasure of Emmaus” this year. The scene depicts the borough’s Remembrance Garden with the historical Knauss Homestead in the distance.

The cards, which are blank inside, will be sold (10 for $12) in stores throughout the town as a fund-raiser for the arts commission.
