  7. Please support the Owen J. Roberts High School safe and fun Post Prom Party by purchasing an online raffle ticket at this link https://rafflecreator.com/pages/1470/owen-j-roberts-wildcat-chances

    Dear Parents and Community Members:
    Prom season is fast approaching. This year’s Junior/Senior prom is on Saturday, May 3rd, and our high school PTSA is working hard to ensure a memorable and safe post-prom experience for your sons, daughters, friends, and neighbors.
    Please do your part by encouraging your child to attend OJR’s post-prom party and prevent attendance at a private party. The fact is, today's society allows easy access to alcohol and drugs, and peer pressure is extremely high on prom night, possibly leading to regretfully bad decisions. We at the PTSA are working hard to ensure a fun and fabulous evening for all our prom attendees!
    We are asking that every family buy 5 tickets for themselves and try to encourage at least 5 people to visit the page and purchase tickets. Share the link with grandparents, friends, co-workers... Please understand that this is a major fundraiser for the Post Prom event, and if we are not able to sell enough tickets, this truly worthwhile activity might not continue at the level we wish to provide our children.
    Many volunteers and a good deal of funding are needed to provide food, entertainment, activities, chaperones, music, and decorations that make this a fun and exciting event. We also ask that you consider participating even if your child is not attending this year so the event will be available in the future when your child is involved. To get involved, or for more information, contact Karen Shimer at karenshimer@comcast.net or Louise Capaldo at louise928@comcast.net.
    This is a night of memories that will last a lifetime. Please help the PTSA to ensure these are great memories for all of our students.
    Thank you for participating and be sure to share this link with your family, friends and co-workers! The students are guaranteed to win a fun night at the Post Prom Party and some lucky folks will be Wildcat Chance Winners too!

    Dining with Diabetes is a Penn State Extension program for adults with diabetes and their families. This Spring the New Hanover Fire Company will host a free Dining with Diabetes class for those in the community that are interested in attending. The sessions will be held at The New Hanover Fire Company, 2154 Swamp Pike, Gilbertsville, PA 19525. The dates and times for the program are April 24, May 8, 15, 22 and 29, 2014 each session will be held from 10:30am -12:30pm. April 24 will be an information and participant registration session. In addition to these sessions, a follow-up class will be held on July 24, 2014. Pre-registration is required.

    Participants will learn how to prepare meals that are healthy, simple and taste good. Recipes will be demonstrated and participants will have the opportunity to help prepare and taste each one. Participants will also learn up-to-date information on nutrition, meal planning, and exercises as well as how to understand common, diabetes–related medical issues. Recipes and handouts will be given to each participant.

    Diabetes is a very serious and costly disease, but research has shown that those who learn to manage their blood sugar levels, eat healthy, and exercise regularly can lower their risk of complications and lead a healthier and more productive life.

  19. BOYERTOWN AREA CHORAL ASSOCIATION TO PRESENT ANNUAL FREE SPRING CONCERT

    The Boyertown Area Choral Association will conclude its 24th season with a FREE spring concert on Sunday, May 4th at The Good Shepherd United Church of Christ, located at 35 W. Philadelphia Avenue in Boyertown. The concert will be held at 3 p.m.

    Directed by Boyertown alumni Donna M. House and Donna Jean Marshall, the community chorus will offer a pleasing mix of musical selections. Traditional favorites such as the timeless hymn “Then Sings My Soul (How Great Thou Art)” will be performed, as well as more contemporary numbers like “For Good,” the tender ballad from the hit Broadway musical Wicked. The uplifting text of “How Can I Keep from Singing” and the driving energy of “Put a Little Love in Your Heart (with Love Train)” are nicely balanced by the hauntingly inspirational “Pure Imagination” which was originally performed by Gene Wilder in the popular Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Of special significance to the choir is “The Majesty and Glory of Your Name,” a stirring piece that seamlessly flows from hushed tones to a bold and majestic sound.

    The concert is free and open to the public. A cookie reception will follow the performance.

    For more information please contact Donna House at bachoral@gmail.com.

    July 15, 2014
    Guest Speaker: Dr. Paul Michael Raymond

    Dr. Raymond will speak on the highly relevant and important subject:
    "Tactical Considerations for a Biblical Reformation"

    How can we best put our faith into action?

    How do we address the critical issues facing us today?

    How can we best serve Christ in building His Kingdom?



    "All reforms are fundamentally religious in nature, and therefore if American is to experience a Biblical reformation it must begin at the house of God...God's purpose for us is not abstract knowledge of all things but the knowledge of His revelations and for a specific purpose, that we may do all the words of this law."


    Come out and bring a friend for a great time of dining, fellowship, and learning. We hope to see you there!

  39. BOYERTOWN AREA CHORAL ASSOCIATION PRESENTS TWO FREE HOLIDAY CONCERTS

    This year the Boyertown Area Choral Association will celebrate the holiday season by offering two free concerts to the community. The first will be held on Thanksgiving weekend, Sunday, November 30th at 3 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church, located at 750 N. Evans Street in Pottstown. The second concert will take place on Sunday, December 7th at 3 p.m. at The Good Shepherd United Church of Christ at 35 W. Philadelphia Avenue in Boyertown. BACA is directed by Boyertown alumni Donna House and Donna Jean Marshall.

    The chorus will perform variations of traditional favorites like the soothing “A Celtic Silent Night” and lively “Angels in Seven.” Original holiday pieces such as “The World for Christmas” which expresses the wish that all children will inherit a beautiful, healthy planet, and “Somewhere in My Memory,” the Oscar-nominated signature tune from the movie Home Alone, will also be sung. The brass ensemble of the Boyertown Alumni Band will play Christmas carols for 30 minutes before the December 7th concert.

    Both of the Christmas concerts are free and open to the public, but a free-will offering will also be taken. Part of the Pottstown performance’s offering will benefit the Pottstown Cluster Outreach, which strives to help individuals make real progress in moving from dependence to productive self-sufficiency. Part of the Boyertown concert’s offering will go to the Boyertown Area Multi-Service, an agency that helps to meet the social service and human needs of people of all ages in the greater Boyertown area.

  43. In late Spring 2013 a small group of cadets and parents met to explore the possibility of a trip to Ireland following a guest speaker who serves in the Royal Navy Lifeboat Institution (RNLI). From this meeting Operation Cloverfield was launched. Now in late 2014 the dream is inching toward reality. The cadets and adult chaperones are scheduled to leave on June 23, 2015 for a 2 week stay in the Dublin, Ireland area. The experiences planned are participation in July 4, celebration, honor and color guard duties as assigned by the military attaché, training opportunities with the RNLI, Irish Navy and Irish National Defense Corps. Obviously, Operation Cloverfield is a really big opportunity for the cadets. Fundraising efforts have been organized since Summer 2014. The cadets and their families have greeted customers at Giovanni’s Pizza, stuffed envelopes with solicitation letters to area veterans’ associations, sold Friends & Family Shopping passes at Boscov’s, cleaned hundreds of crates during a Cat Show, parked cars at Hay Creek festivals, manned arts and crafts tables for kids visiting Colonial Gardens, participated in a Christmas Bazaar, wrapped countless gifts at Boscov’s, and sold beautiful poinsettias for Christmas. More events are planned.
    We understand that to raise the $100,000.00 we must spread our story. Recently another effort to raise awareness was launched. As you know, even a small donation can go a long way.

  87. See where colonial career paths could take you at Pottsgrove Manor as we present our program, “Jack of All Trades,” on Saturday, July 22nd, 2017, from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm.

    Do you have what it takes to be a “Jack of All Trades” at Pottsgrove Manor? There will be cooking in our reproduction 18th century kitchen where you can learn the skills needed to make a Georgian meal in a hearth fireplace. Weavers will be working on tape looms and turning wool into yarn and thread. Our mason, or brick/stone layer, will be illustrating the steps in stone carving by hand. Discover what a seamstress will be piecing together to create and hand-sew colonial garments. Explore what a book binder, colonial shoe maker, and broom maker are showcasing, teaching about their craft, and showing off their wares. Hands-on activities allow everyone to experience the noises, sights, and smells of the different 18th century careers and skills that crafted both everyday and luxury items. Colonial ironmaster John Potts’ 1752 manor house will be open for tours during the day. Visitors will also be able to shop at the manor’s museum shop for colonial games, books, and unique gifts.
