Benefit for Bryce Werner

BRYCE WERNER is a 14-year-old high school freshman who attends Emmaus High School. He’s also taking Auto Mechanics training at his local vocational/technical school. Since early 2016, Bryce has been dealing with a rare form of “GIST” cancer which has affected various organs including his liver. He is currently being treated via an NIH cancer research project, because the cancer is not responding to conventional chemotherapy methods.

Bryce lives with his parents, Chris and Tiffany Werner, and brother Cameron, 12, and sister Arianna, 15, in Lower Macungie Township. Both Chris and Arianna have been diagnosed with “markers” for a similar cancer. The Werner family has been confronted with a mountain of financial bills, both medical-related and otherwise. Our goal is to raise monies to assist with just a small portion of their burdens. The planned March 3rd Benefit will be a special one. PLEASE consider joining us for this spectacular extravaganza hosted by the J-Walkers volunteer team!! Download the attached flyer for all the details!

Secret Valley Trail Feasability Study

The Trail Steering Committee held our first kick-off meeting on Friday, Feb. 2, 2018 for the Secret Valley Trail Feasibility Study. With a generous matching grant awarded from DCNR, the Borough of Boyertown and Building a Better Boyertown were able to hire a consultant (Campbell Thomas & Company) to create a Trail Feasibility Study for a multi-use trail to begin in Boyertown and connect to the Tri-County Trail system in Pottstown, ultimately connecting to the East Coast GreenwayTrail from Maine to Florida. Imagine getting on your bike and riding from Pine Forge to the Boyertown Library without having to negotiate traffic on Rt. 562. Stay tuned for a public meeting coming in March where we will be looking for suggestions, recommendations and input on this study. To volunteer on the trail steering committee please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
