Pottstown is Having a Field Day, Be Part of It
A Community Field Day to help families learn about low-cost fitness and outdoor activities will be held at the Chestnut Street Park in Pottstown on Saturday, Aug. 27 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The park is located at the corner of Chestnut and Washington streets.
The goal is to have at least 15-17 stations of fitness/sports or other activity for group participation.
Each station will have groups of approximately 10 people participating in the activity for about five minutes.
The DJ will play family appropriate music continuously until the five minutes are up.
Then, the DJ will use audio equipment to yell/announce SWITCH, and each group will move on to a new station.
Each participant will receive a stamp on their activity pass for every station they complete. Once they complete 10 stations or more, participants will turn in their card and receive a free gift.
This way we can track how many people completed the minimum challenge equating to at least 45 minutes of fitness for each participant.
Organizations that want to participate, man a table, or donate a raffle prize or a gift to give to families for their participation should send an email to Laura Washington at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (484) 300-2410.
The even is in need of healthy food items in order to provide free samples, gift bag giveaways and raffle prizes.
Volunteers are also needed for set-up. The set up will begin at 10 a.m. Tables and chairs will be provided but help is needed setting them up along with some of the activity stations.
In addition to the community field day activities, there will be a DJ playing music, children’s table activities and free food samplings.
