The band consists of volunteer musicians from Lower Pottsgrove, Upper Pottsgrove and West Pottsgrove (PA) townships – some of them highly trained professionals – who practice every Monday at 7:30 p.m. from September through June at the high school under the direction of Pottsgrove Middle School music teacher Rodney Boyer. He invites all community musicians to join the band; e-mail him to express an interest.
The band and other recreational programs in the Pottsgroves townships are sponsored by the Pottsgrove Recreation Board, a centralized recreational organization that is funded by the three townships and the Pottsgrove School District. It meets on the second Thursday of each month.
The board is composed of an elected official and a citizen representative from each governing body. They are Steve Klotz and Patty Bleakly, Lower Pottsgrove; Renee Spaide and Jill Ludy, Upper Pottsgrove; Patrick O’Neil and Pat Daly; and Scott Fulmer and Diane Cherico, schools. Jody Sweinhart is director of recreation.
