Pandemic Cancels Lower Pottsgrove Community Day

SANATOGA PA – The popular annual Lower Pottsgrove Community Day, which in recent years has been held on the White Pine Lane grounds of the Ringing Hill Fire Company, has become another victim of the coronavirus pandemic. It is canceled for this year, but its return has optimistically been scheduled for Oct. 23, 2021.

The cancellation announcement came Tuesday (Sept. 8, 2020) during the township Board of Commissioners meeting at Sunnybrook Ballroom.

The township Police Department and Parks and Recreation Board made plans shortly after last year’s event for the 2020 season, but that was months before the pandemic forced statewide shutdowns this March. Township Manager Ed Wagner said all who had agreed to participate in this year’s Community Day believed canceling it made sense as a safety precaution.
