Please click on the link below to see all the exciting activities that will be taking place in downtown Pottstown during the December “holiday” season:
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.
This Saturday Pottstown will be the place to be! From 11 am until 3 pm activities galore will be taking place in Smith Plaza and throughout Pottstown. The party moves to Pottstown Senior High School from 3 pm until 6 pm with even more activities.
This idea has been a long time coming! Let’s muster all our civic pride and be proud of Pottstown, put our best foot forward and say positive things this Saturday.

Pottstown School District and Olivet Boys & Girls Club will sponsor a Lights On Afterschool rally on Thursday, October 22 from 3:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. at Smith Plaza in Pottstown, PA. It will be one of more than 7,500 such events around the nation that day, the ninth annual Lights On Afterschool celebration, organized by the Afterschool Alliance. California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is Chair of Lights On Afterschool again this year. Speakers from the local area will call for expanding afterschool opportunities so that every child who needs a program has access to one, and discuss the harm that results from budget cuts and freezes.
Participants in the Lights On Afterschool will learn about how afterschool programs in Pottstown are keeping kids safe and healthy, inspiring them to learn, and relieving working parents of worries about their children’s activities during the afternoon hours. The program is open to all parents, supporters and community members. Guests are invited to participate in programs hosted by the Gallery on High, Girl Scouts, Pottstown Library and others. Refreshments and prizes will be provided at the event for attendees.
