Boyertown Jaycees 61st Halloween Parade winners announced

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

The Boyertown Jaycees 61st Halloween Parade will be held on Saturday Oct. 19, commencing at 7 p.m. Formation began at the Boyertown Elementary School, Boyertown Junior High School West and Federal-Mogul parking lots.
WRFY 9102.5 (FM) was the MC for the parade this year.
This year’s parade route remained the same as previous years. The route began at Second and Madison Streets, north to Philadelphia Avenue to south on Reading Avenue, east on Third, south on Monroe Street and east on Second Street.
In an effort to help The Boyertown Area Multi-Service restock their food pantry for the upcoming holidays, Boy Scout Troop 36, St. Luke Lutheran Church, was collecting pantry items along the parade route.
The food pantry supplies food to many of our friends and neighbors in need without our community. The rising cost of food and the expanding list of people requesting service is challenging their resources however, with the community’s help, the Scouts can help the Boyertown area community.
As Boy Scouts, their motto is ‘To do a good turn daily!’ to do something because it is the right thing to do. And so the youth and adult members of Troop 36 are asking you to do you ‘good turn’ to help the community.
The results for the parade are as follows:
