A Bright Shining Star

It’s one of the most recognizable – and beautiful – holiday images. Crafted from intricately designed metals, sparkling crystals, or the more traditional glass or white paper, thousands of Moravian Stars are displayed throughout the Lehigh Valley each year.

No matter which winter holidays you celebrate, exchanging gifts is part of the traditions. But if your recipient’s taste is apart from the mainstream, shopping can be tough.

Werley Heating & Air Conditioning Co.

With the end of the year comes unpredictable weather conditions. The hurricane remnants bring heavy rains and strong winds that often equal power outages. The early snowstorms make us want to crank up the heat indoors to keep out the colder temperatures. Once in a while we even get those fall summer-like days that are perfect for turning on the old AC.
