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!

There were many dresses to pick from with 730 dresses available and over 100 pairs of shoes. Most of the girls left with a dress and perhaps even a few accessories to complete the outfit.

“The dress is such a crucial part of going to prom and unfortunately, it can be a financial burden for some. We were thrilled with seeing 56 young ladies attend Once Upon a Prom this year. For the volunteers, the best part of this event is seeing the girl’s faces as they walked out in their selected dress. It really is a special moment,” said Anita Zuber, BJWC member.
The event was deemed a success by BJWC. The number attending the event was at a record high, continue reading…
