The Borough of Boyertown 2015 Sensational Summer activities kicked off on April 25 with Earthfest held at the Boyertown Community Park. The event featured our annual shred event and a presentation by the Philadelphia Zoo. There were so many activities for all to enjoy ~ crafts, nature programs, pony rides, an obstacle course, moon bounce and more.
The annual Memorial Day parade will be on Memorial Day, May 25. It will begin at the Boyertown High School Monroe Street entrance at 9:15 and will travel west on Philadelphia Avenue. West Philadelphia Ave will be closed to traffic between Terrace Street and W. Second Street (in front of the cemetery) until the conclusion of the ceremony. Everyone is invited and encouraged to begin your Memorial Day celebration with this inspiring tribute to those who have served our country.
May 25 is EMS week. This is a great time to remember to send in your Boyertown Ambulance membership and to thank them for their dedication to the community.
