As I was sitting at Happy Hour......


As I was sitting at Happy Hour today in Catty, no not what your thinking. This is at 11:00 AM to 12 Noon, Wednesdays at Salem UCC in Catty. There is a small lunch for anyone who would like to come, mostly seniors (and me). Since I do find myself not working occasionally on a Wednesday I like to go for a nice bowl of soup made by Shirley Turner. Today I sat with Dan Turner and I asked him about the Catasauqua Lake. Should of called him when I was trying to find out the information! Because as my friend LeeAnn had commented on Facebook about her father and grandfather going there, the Catasauqua Rod and Gun Club built the lake, thusly I am guessing that's why they called it Catasauqua Lake. Dan told me that he went fishing there alot, it wasn't that deep and he could wade out to the middle.

I found that Robert G. Gifford Sr. started the Catasauqua Rod and Gun Club, and that he just passed away in February at the age of 86. So I guess that gives us some sort of time line to.

So I guess that's one mystery solved, and maybe I will learn more as I explore and that's ....another day in Catasauqua.
