I was just a kid, but I remember the Firebirds home at the corner of Hanover & Third Streets, across from St. Al’s, if my memory is correct. I think there was a big sign that said something like, “Home of the Championship Pottstown Firebirds.” As a budding athlete, who was interested in all kinds of sports, there was a lot of pride in the community for that team. I’m really looking forward to attending the lunch and reception described below. Come out and meet some of the men who made it happen! More details can be found below and at The Gallery’s website.
Come Celebrate with the Pottstown Firebirds!
The Pottstown Firebirds are coming home, and you are invited to share the day with them! In celebration of the Gallery School of Pottstown’s second edition of the Pottstown Signature Series, which this year honors the Pottstown Firebirds, we will be holding a day of celebration leading up to our holiday party.
The day begins with a fabulous lunch at Brookside Country Club with the team members and managers of the Pottstown Firebirds. Enjoy a delicious menu and relive that time in our town’s history when the Firebirds were all the buzz. The lunch starts at noon and a reservation is required.
Scheduled to attend from the Firebirds: Bob Calvario — President; Al Cavallo — Program advertising; Neil Mahr– Printing /Programs; Jack Dolbin — WR (played for Denver Broncos); Greg Berger — DB; Leo Levandowski — C; Herb Nauss — DB; Dr. William Rakow — DB; Frank Mitchell — OT; John Land — RB; and Jim Haynie – QB.
Tickets are $100 and include lunch and your very own Signature Series poster. A $40 option is available for those only interested in lunch.
And… You are cordially invited to our Annual Holiday Party!
The evening will wind down at Gallery on High, where we will have our annual holiday party with the players and coaches as our special guests. The team will be on hand to sign both the Signature Series posters, which will be available for purchase at the party, or any other Firebirds memorabilia you may have saved over the years. There will also be a display with some Firebirds items from the players’ personal collections. Good food and good times with friends old and new.
Thanks to The Pourhouse for providing the food for this great event!
The party starts at 5pm and ends at 8pm, and there is NO CHARGE to attend. A small donation to the Gallery School for autographed items is greatly appreciated.
