POTTSTOWN, PA — Sometimes people have to be scared into action.
And so you could say that perhaps one of the best things that ever happened to the Pottstown Halloween parade was that it was almost killed off last year by lack of funding.
Among those who stepped up into the breach, providing a needed infusion of funds, was the Stichter Lodge No. 254, F & AM Masonic Lodge which, earlier in the year, had a scare of its own.
Large pieces of cornice work had fallen off their landmark building on North Franklin Street and the members were not sure how to pay to repair it.
“We were kind of scared into action,” said Dave Hollenbach, a past master at the lodge. “We started looking into alternative ways to fund repairs to the building and it was about then that the issues with the Halloween parade cropped up.”
