With that, this, the second website of Independence Day, Ltd. has completed its’ function. This has served as the committee’s sole communication source, kept the brand alive and spurred new interest.
To our readers, thank you. Anything that has been accomplished here was for the benefit of the good people of Pottstown and Vicinity.
To the committee and its new partners: you have inherited a tradition you did not build. You are charged with staging a celebration of the Founding of the United States of America. This generation needs a lesson in civic duty, and you have a great opportunity. Cherish it.

A long time ago, the committee wanted to honor the Little League’s All-Star game players with official July 4th caps. In 1985, the committee started selling them to the public. Over the years they have become a treasured collectible. The original price of $5.00 is still kept, to allow the most a chance to help the committee raise funds. They are purchased directly from the manufacturer to maximize the profit, just like Wal-Mart. You may purchase at Memorial Park on Friday, July 2, or along the parade route on Saturday, July 3. The chances of getting one of these after the parade is slim. Here is this years’ edition:
Pottstown has always had some wildlife, and Saturday July 3 will be no different. The Red Creek Wildlife Raptor will be appearing at the park and will be bringing native Pennsylvania species and have an informative and educational display.
Rubber ducks and wild game. One might say this is…….out of the box.
The Nineteenth Annual Rotary Club of Pottstown Duck Race will be Saturday, July 3, 2010. Through this project, over $260,000.00 has been raised and contributed to non-profits in the Pottstown area, including this celebration and the Relay For Life, Habitat for Humanity and American Cancer Society.
Each rubber duck is $5, and the First Prize is $1,000.00 cash, second prize is 40″ HDTV, valued at $ 1,000.00.
Ducks can be purchased at the Park, or call Parks & Rec 610-970-6608
Dozens of smaller prizes have been donated by area businesses, or shall we call them corporate sponsors.
