This past Friday night we had an awesome turnout of about 75 people for the Happy Hour at the Farmers’ Market. The new owners, Ben Moscia and Elise LeBoutillier, were our gracious hosts. They’ve already done a lot of work to spruce up the Market and will be putting things in motion over the coming weeks and months to do even more work on the building and the exterior and get new tenants in. Please, please support their efforts and the businesses that are already there by BUYING LOCAL.
Sheila and Gene Dugan of Grumpy’s provided a really nice spread, including scrumptious chocolate cake and carrot cake by Company Cakes at 26 N. Charlotte Street.
We heard inspirational words and updates from Mayor Heath, Superintendent Dr. Reed Lindley, Borough Manager Jason Bobst and WPAZ station manager Ross Landy.
There were a lot of new faces at this event, and I hope we can keep bringing people together to make connections and forge partnerships that will create a better Pottstown.
The next Happy Hour will be on Friday, March 18 from 5-7:30 pm at the Tri-County Performing Arts Center at 245 E. High Street. Tri-PAC will be putting on The Crucible that night, and I encourage you to purchase your ticket to the show in advance, then come out to the Happy Hour for a good time before the show. My BUY LOCAL pitch includes supporting the local arts scene! I’ll get the invite out on Monday, but anyone can rsvp for the next Happy Hour by sending an email to email@example.com. Hope to see you downtown!
Thanks again for organizing this event Sue and for your commitment to Pottstown!
Thanks for being a regular, Barb! I have to say it’s gotten easier to organize, and maybe I’m just a simple person, but I’m basically at peace with the world when there’s a room full of people having a good time. 🙂
It was exciting to have everyone there. I think a good time was had by all. It was nice for members of my family to be there, and to see the buzz. I sincerely thank everyone who was there, and you, Sue, for organizing it. Everyone made us feel welcome in Pottstown!
Hey, Ben – I definitely heard a lot of positive buzz. A lot of people are pulling for the Market to make a comeback. Whatever I/we can do, we will do! Sue
