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!

Acupuncture and Oriental medicine have been used to treat men’s health concerns for thousands of years and are growing in popularity. This is because many of these health issues (high blood pressure, prostate problems and depression), respond extremely well to acupuncture treatments.  Hours: Mon-Thurs 10:30 am – 7:30 pm, Fri 10:30 am – 2:30 pm.  Contact us for a FREE consultation – (610) 367-1633 www.thriveacupuncturecenter.com

streetfairlogoGreetings Greater Boyertown Community!

The Philadelphia Ave Street Fair is fast approaching! As has been done in the past, we will be holding an event raffle! We’ve begun selling raffle tickets in the community and will be selling raffle tickets all day during the event (($1.00 each or 6 for $5.00). We’ll have raffle prizes to raffle off throughout the day with a $400 Grand Prize at the end of the day!

We’re looking for Raffle Prizes so we’re asking any and all Event Sponsors, Vendors, BMBA members, local businesses, organizations and clubs … currently participating in the event or not … to get involved, promote your business/organization/club by donating a Raffle Prize! Whether you offer a gift certificate to your establishment, a few items with your logo on them, a little goody basket with items you think others would enjoy – it will all be appreciated by those who attend and win!

Raffle prizes can be brought to the BMBA booth on Saturday, June 18th – the day of the event. If you’d like someone to pick up your Raffle Prize donation prior to the event, please email dhydock@chestnutknoll.com to let us know!

Time-Capsule-FlyerJoin us this Sunday, June 12th, 1 – 4 p.m. at the Boyertown Area Historical Society for the time capsule reveal.  The Historical Society is located at 43 S. Chestnut Street, Boyertown.  Download the Flyer

The Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles and students from the Boyertown Area Senior High School have embarked on a cooperative project that will benefit both organizations.  Art and history students have both begun projects based at and inspired by the Museum.  The art students’ work will culminate in an art show to be held at the Museum on Thursday, June 2 from 4-6pm.  Download the Press Release for more information.

In March of this year we added a ninth Meals on Wheels route to accommodate more recipients in need of Meals on Wheels services. This was very necessary and helped us keep the routes from getting too long.

We currently have volunteers who have been delivering Meals on Wheels for 20 – 40 years and are now needing to retire from their volunteer work. We’re now recruiting for new Meals on Wheels Volunteers to step into a variety of roles as soon as possible!

Our nine Meals on Wheels routes serve 120+ home-bound clients per day with a hot noon meal as well as an additional cold evening meal – equivalent to 240+ meals delivered each day. In 2015, we prepared, packaged and delivered 36,750 delicious and nutritious Meals on Wheels meals.

If you have at least 1 ½ – 2 hours between the hours of 11:00 am and 1:00 pm that you’re available during the week, we’d love to have you join us! You can choose to volunteer once a month or more frequently – whatever works for you. Usually, each route has two volunteers – one to drive and one to carry the meal inside, some drivers prefer to do the route alone. Training is provided.
To learn more about becoming a Meals on Wheels volunteer, please contact Diane, our Meals on Wheels Case Manager at 610-367-6957 or email her at djoyce@boyertownareamulti-service.org to find out more!

Please spread the word in order to help us, help our community!
