Welcome to Building a Better Boyertown

Building a Better Boyertown (BBB) is a non-profit organization formed in 2002. Boyertown, PA is a Main Street Community, received funding from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development and private donors to focus on downtown revitalization.

BBB staff and volunteers develop and accomplish tasks that maintain Boyertown’s historical heritage, promote downtown Boyertown and attract people to the community. They concentrate on business recruitment and retention and on providing technical assistance and grant opportunities for property and business owners in the Main Street District to make facade improvements enhancing the town's Victorian architecture.

Overall, Boyertown's approach to revitalization is comprehensive in nature. We are always looking for fresh faces and ideas to help us achieve our goals. Come join us, and the fun!

begTrinity Church in Boyertown started an organic community garden three years ago on their property.  Volunteers donate lots of hours to prepare the soil, plant, harvest and deliver fresh produce to Multiservice and Salvation Army in Boyertown.

This year God’s Garden received a $10,000 grant from the Pottstown Area Health and Wellness Foundation to supply a permanent water source to the garden.  This now enables the garden to be a true community garden with easy access to water.   We are inviting people from the community to come and have their own garden bed to grow whatever vegetables they wish.  The soil is there and tilled, some plants and gardening tools will be provided.  An application and small fee of $20.00 will get someone started.  Garden beds can be entered in the Home Gardeners contest as well.

Trinity’s Cornerstone Pre-School, Sunday School Classes and Youth are all planting seeds in peat pots this week and next for Earth week.  continue reading…

librarylogoDear Community Business:

It is that time of the year again – time to plan for the 2016 Summer Reading Program!  For 10 weeks this summer, we will provide special programming and literacy support for about 1,000 children, teens and adults in our surrounding area.  In addition, we will have special raffles for teens and adults to encourage reading and community involvement.

In all of Berks County, Boyertown Community Library has typically been among the libraries with the largest amount of teen participation in the Summer Reading Program.  This is largely due to the fact that prizes have been donated by local businesses like yours.  We would not be able to be successful without your help.

The library is in special need of donations of items such as:

  • Gift cards
  • Gift certificates
  • Gift baskets
  • Service coupons
  • Merchandise

Or a monetary donation can be made and an incentive prize will be purchased on your behalf.  continue reading…

In 1994, Olivet Boys & Girls Club began a special community event and fundraiser called the Kiss-A-Pig contest.  Since its inception, close to 250 candidates have raised over $1 million dollars for the at risk youth in Pottstown and Reading. The three candidates who raise the most money will be announced at their annual Steak & Burger Dinner on May 25, 2016 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel.
