This year (Saturday, July 2, 2016) our plan, as of today, is to recognize the Homecoming Queens. Our preliminary plans include greeting the Boyertown Queen as she arrives at Colebrookdale Railroad, where she will travel to Pottstown Memorial Park. All of the Homecoming Queens will proceed to the Pottstown Classics car show. The Homecoming Queens will be formally introduced and the 2015 Queen will present the traveling trophy to the High School Representative.

We have created the 4th of July hat and that will be for sale at that time.

Going forward, depending on funds received, will determine what festivities we will be able to provide. Thank you for your support.
