ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

Allentown's past and future are coming together at the city's ice hockey arena.

At an event Wednesday morning, officials unveiled the official logo for the PPL Center.  It features an illustration of the ice hockey arena with the iconic PPL building in the background.

Later, state lawmakers and arena officials signed a steel beam, which will be put on display inside the facility.

The community is invited to sign the beam at Allentown's party on the deck event on Aug 22.

The PPL Center is slated to open in the fall of 2014.
