Blogger's Note: The following was provided Friday afternoon by Cathy Skitko from The Hill School:
During this gathering, representatives from the Borough, the Pottstown School District, and The Hill School will begin planning a collaborative volunteer project that will involve teams of personnel and students from these three entities on Friday, Oct. 25.
The Project is focusing on the core redevelopment area bounded by High Street, north to Beech Street, then from Hanover Street east to Edgewood Street.
Dubbed the Pottstown CARES Project -- with CARES representing Community, Awareness, Responsibility, Empowerment, and Sustainability -- this endeavor will utilize the efforts of The Hill School's students, faculty, and staff; a dedicated group of Pottstown School District students and teachers; and a crew of Borough maintenance professionals.
Pottstown residents are encouraged to attend the meeting Tuesday evening to help organizers plan how to make a tangible impact on the borough on Oct. 25, both in terms of improved aesthetics and, ideally, heightened and sustainable Pottstown community spirit and commitment.
Light refreshments will be served.
