Supporting our Local Restaurants

Join us to support Pottstown restaurants.  Our club loves supporting our local businesses, eating out, trying new things and getting together.  We're starting a series of events to do all of these things. 
We will be choosing a couple restaurants each week.  Rotarians are encouraged to order takeout or delivery or even to purchase a gift card from one of the restaurants.  These local businesses are staying open in a limited capacity and they need our support!  If you're interested, we'll also post a time when Rotarians can meet up to enjoy their takeout together in a socially distanced manner.
 
Our first takeout day will be May 28th.  If you'd like to meet up, come to Sunnybrook Ballroom with your takeout around 6:30pm.  Park in the lower lot.  We will maintain at least 6 feet of distance and get to check in with each other in a safe way.
The restaurants chosen for this week are listed below. We will update with menu info, hours, websites, etc. as they are available. If you plan to order around the meetup time, 6:30pm, sign up here.
If we have a lot of people we can give the restaurant a heads up.

Arts Competition Bingo

Our fundraiser for the Performing Arts Competition was held Sunday afternoon at the Brookside Country Club.
We had a huge turnout - over 200 people which was a capacity-crowd in the ballroom and they had a great time!
 
This year Kelly Myers was center stage as she called out the Bingo numbers and she had a lot of help from committee members who worked with the crowd celebrating each "BINGO!" that came about.
Thanks to everyone who came out to help get us setup and then produce another wonderful event for Pottstown Rotary!
With the proceeds from this event, our Performing Arts Competition, which is to occur on November 16th, is well on its way to awarding over $5000 in scholarships for deserving students.

Pottstown July 4th Parade
 

ROTARY CLUB OF POTTSTOWN
PO Box 227, POTTSTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA 19464 U.S.A.
 
 
The Pottstown Fourth of July Parade is back!
 

 
The Rotary Club of Pottstown is proud to be organizing and sponsoring this traditional hometown event, and to be part of the many positive things that are happening in Pottstown.  Parade organization includes mainstays such as the Rotary Club 16-foot-high inflated yellow duck, a float from the Pottstown GoFourth Festival, the Boyertown Alumni Band, Getz Steam Calliope, veterans’ groups and many other local organizations. 
 
We invite your organization to participate.  Please contact us at pottstownrotary@gmail.com
We will send you a Registration Form or you can download it from our "Download Files" section on the website. 
The parade begins at 10:30 am on July 4 at High and Adams Sts. and continues west to Manatawny Street.
 
We expect a great parade with strong community participation, but it will come with expenses such as traffic control/police protection and costs to secure some of the participating bands and contingents. 
Therefore, there is a registration fee required –
$35 for Non-Profit organizations (excluding fire houses), $60 for business/commercial entities,
or $100 for political entities. Individuals and families must register, but pay no fee.
 
The Pottstown GoFourth! Festival is organizing and planning the events in Memorial Park in the afternoon and evening. 
Although we are working cooperatively with them, we are financially separate.
 
Registration forms must be submitted and fees must be paid to Rotary by Friday, June 21, 2019.
 
For questions and additional information contact us at pottstownrotary@gmail.com
or our website at www.pottstownrotary.org.
 
We hope you will join us.

Rotary club members are volunteers who work locally, regionally, and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the motto Service Above Self.

We're proud of the contributions that the Pottstown Rotary Club is making toward a better community here in Pottstown and a around the world.  Many of our members have traveled to places like Haiti, Thailand and India where people are in much need. 

Here in our community we hope you recognize our efforts to make this a better place to live.  The Riverfront Pavilion (shown above), Literacy Training, Annual Talent Show for area teenagers, Strike Out for Hunger, Big Ticket Night and, of course, the Rotary Duck Race are just some of the events where you see Rotarians making a difference.
