From all accounts, Saturday’s Open House exceeded everyone’s expectations. Estimates put the crowd at between 5,000 & 6,000! That is an awesome turnout.
Perceptions are powerful things and everyone has them. Unfortunately, many people’s “perception” of Pottstown is not very positive. I think this event helped “open eyes” and made people reevaluate their “perception” of our town. Many of us already know Pottstown is a great place to live and we see Pottstown poised to become a regional destination/show place. Sadly, many people focus on the negatives and do not accentuate the positives.
Many thanks for everyone involved in the Open House for opening eyes and changing perceptions. Hopefully this event instilled some civic pride that is sorely lacking in this town.
