Lebanon Mayor Sherry Capello will give her annual State of the City Address at noon on Wednesday, Apr. 7, during a “virtual luncheon” sponsored by the Community of Lebanon Association.

Those who want to attend the mayor’s address over a Zoom link will have to purchase tickets, which will include a takeout box lunch at one of three local CLA member restaurants. Tickets are $25.00 for CLA members and $35.00 for everyone else.

The deadline to register is Monday, Mar. 29, either online, by calling the CLA at 717-273-7215, or by emailing cla@lebanoncla.com.

CLA Administrative Assistant Jeannie Mason told LebTown that registration proceeds will help restaurants that have been hurt by COVID-19 restrictions.

Participating CLA member restaurants and their pick-up lunch menus are:

  • La Placita – 922 Cumberland Street (Burrito, Chips and Salsa, Drink – Horchata)
  • Sydney Roasting Company – 12 N. 9th Street (“The Jamie” – Chicken Bacon Ranch sandwich, Iced Salted Maple Butter Rum Latte or Raspberry Ice Tea, Chocolate Chip Cookie)
  • DiNunzio’s Authentic Italian Hoagie – 718 Poplar Street (1/2 Italian Sub, Drink, Chips, Cookie)

This will be the second year that the COVID pandemic has forced the mayor’s annual review of the opportunities and challenges facing the city to go online.

Registrants will be emailed the Zoom link, and will receive a voucher for their lunches, which can picked up at their selected restaurant between 8:00 a.m. and noon on Apr. 7.
