POTTSTOWN PA – Today (Friday, June 15, 2012) is the last day registrations will be accepted for children in Lower, Upper and West Pottsgrove townships to participate in the annual summer recreation and playground program of the Pottsgrove Recreation Board.
This year’s events, from June 25 to July 27, include opportunities to play sports, have arts and crafts time, and attend prearranged trips. Program sites have been relocated because of redistricting plans for elementary schools in the Pottsgrove School District, and are now established at Ringing Rocks Elementary School, on Kauffman Road in Lower Pottsgrove Township; and at the West Pottsgrove Township municipal building on Grosstown Road in Stowe.
The program is open to all Pottsgrove children who have completed kindergarten through 8th grade, with on-site activities Mondays through Thursdays, and trips planned for Fridays. Among trips being scheduled are those for miniature golf, bowling, swimming, roller skating, and watching a Reading Phillies game.
Participation fees that cover the cost of program activities will be charged at the rate of $50 per child for the first and second children of each family, but with a maximum charge of $125 per family no matter the number of children it registers. Registrations will not be held, the board cautions, once the playground program opens.
For more information, call Director of Recreation Jody Sweinhart at 484-300-9637.
The board is the central recreational organization of the Pottsgrove townships, and was created to provide recreational activities for their residents. Funding is provided by the three townships and the school district. Board members meet on the second Thursday of each month.
