May Happenings in the Lehigh Valley

Summer is just around the corner and everyone is getting excited to feel the heat! School is almost over for the year and the days are getting blissfully longer. Always a fun place to live, the Lehigh Valley is jam-packed with fun things to do in May.

Even if you’ve decided to search for Lehigh County jobs this month, you still need to make time to enjoy yourself. There’s so much going on in our community, you’ll probably have a hard time choosing between events! At HTSS, Inc., these three happenings are front-and-center on our radar, so we wanted to share them with you.

Mother’s Day Brunch

Mark your calendars for May 14, because it’s Mother’s Day! A day to honor your mother, grandmother, wife, sister, aunt or any other special lady in your life, it’s never too early to start planning for the holiday. Plenty of Allentown area restaurants will hold special Mother’s Day brunches, lunches and dinners, so visit ASAP to make your reservation.

29th Annual Farm Animal Frolic

Held May 20-21 and May 27-28, the 29th Annual Farm Frolic at Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm in Stroudsburg is fun for the whole family. The event takes place rain or shine, allowing kids to pet a variety of baby farm animals, enjoy hands-on activities and even take in a daily children’s show. There’s also games, refreshments and more, so make a day of it! Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for kids ages 3 to 12.

Opening Day at Wildwater Kingdom Water Park

Get your swimsuit ready, because Wildwater Kingdom Water Park opens for the season on May 27. Simply buy a ticket to Dorney Park — or a season pass — to gain full access to the more than three dozen slides, pools, rivers and play areas. Do note, Wildwater Kingdom has different operating hours than Dorney Park, so check the schedule before planning your visit.

CEO Letter

As a staffing and recruitment professional for over  30 years, I have seen many changes in the industry. Over that time, I’ve witnessed a transformation in the way organizations view staffing services. Today, we see more and more companies using staffing services as a strategic tool, rather than just for temporary fill-ins.

At HTSS, Inc., our focus is on helping companies create proactive workforce plans. Our goal is to help our clients use staffing strategically to increase capacity, overcome hiring freezes, access specialized talent, better manage increased workloads, and enhance overall productivity.

For our candidates, we help to uncover truly rewarding job opportunities—jobs that are a match to each candidate’s skills, and jobs that offer key experience and growth potential.

We look forward to strengthening our relationships with our current clients and candidates, as well as forming new and exciting partnerships in the future.
