Officials say Pottstown Fourth of July events won’t happen this year

Today’s’ POTTSTOWN Mercury. 

Pockets Out

Here We Go Again

Six weeks out and the annual hand-wringing, face-palming, finger-pointing begins.

The Committee says “Oh NO! We need money!”.  The Borough responds “Can’t you read?”

Read this morning’s Mercury article. 

The Committee Letter.

The current committee has proved itself unequal to the task of providing this event and unifying area residents.  The Official website provides no particulars on finances other than announcing fundraisers.

Instead of the committee petitioning the individual council members, why not publish the contact information of the committee  members.  Some may have something to say.

Where Do We Go From Here?

Second year without Fireworks in Pottstown borough.  Many opinions have been offered, and some sincere folks made a Power Point slideshow. Four queen contestants have worked hard to reverse this situation.

Please express your sincere wishes, and SHARE this poll.  Keep the comments clean.  This will serve as a testament of your commitment to your town.

The results will be posted next week, and offered to local media.

Many harken back…

Many harken back to the former times of prosperity in Pottstown and offer no solution for the present, according to Sparagana.

“The Pottstown of 40 years ago isn’t existing anymore,” Sparagana said. “So we have to take from what we have learned in that period and take the benefits of what have come from that period and move forward in the 21st century. And some people don’t want to do that. They become apathetic because of it.”
