These Pottstown Women Are Exceptional, Literally

The women recognized by the YWCA Tri-County Area's Tribute to Exceptional Women in May. (Hey, we're catching up here OK?)

Blogger's Note: Summer is a slower time in the news business. Schools are out of session,
government boards often cancel July and August meetings. For for the staff here at The Digital Notebook, it's a time to look back and catch up on the things we missed in the hustle and bustle of the regular year.

Here is a big one that was provided by the Pottstown School District but slipped through the cracks ... until now. We're happy to present it here for your illumination.

Partisan note: It is with no small amount of partisanship that I point out how often the name of Lincoln Elementary School, my neighbrhood school and my son's alma mater, appears in this list. (It's five,but who's counting?)
