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!

[Boyertown, Pa- October, 2016] –
It would be a challenge to find a group as dedicated to our local community as those women of the Boyertown Junior Woman’s Club. BJWC is a member of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs, one of the world’s largest and oldest nonpartisan, nondenominational women’s volunteer service organizations. Currently the club has 26 members who not only give their time but also their talents for the betterment of Boyertown and the surrounding area.

Each September BJWC gathers for their welcome back meeting. The club year runs from September through May. September is not only a time to look ahead but also to reflect back on the previous club year. During the summer BJWC was able to make a number of donations thanks to the funds they raised during the previous club year. A total of $3,000 was given in community donations.

Notable donations include a $1,000 donation to the Boyertown Community Library to help support their programs. A $200 donation was made to the Historical Society of Boyertown for their building and educational programs. Another donation in the amount of $500 was accepted by Nathaniel Guest of Colebrookdale Railroad. These funds will go to help with children’s programs and allow those who are not able to afford the programs, the chance to participate.

Yet another donation in the amount of $400 was made to David Boyer of “The Growing Center”. The center is a horticultural therapy center with a mobile therapy program. The mobile therapy program visits various nursing homes and rehab centers and uses live plants and horticultural activities to improve a person’s mental, physical and spiritual aspects of life.

BJWC also supported “Save the Town Clock” with a donation of $200 to help preserve a piece of Boyertown history. Finally, two $1,000 scholarships were awarded to graduating Boyertown high school seniors Jordan Shustack and Jaime Wagner to support their continuing education.

“We could not be more proud of the contributions we made this past club year,” said Anita Zuber, Boyertown Junior Woman’s Club president. “As members of the Boyertown community, we want the town we live in to thrive and we work hard to make these donations possible with various fundraisers. We also give many hours of our personal time to support community events and our own club events, such as Once Upon a Prom. We are always looking for new members to join us. We work hard, but we also have a lot of fun.”

We invite those interested in joining BJWC’s volunteer efforts to our upcoming meeting on Monday, November 14th at 7 p.m. at the Multi-Service (200 West Spring Street, Boyertown). For more information about BJWC, visit our Facebook page GFWC Junior Woman’s Club of Boyertown or contact Anita Zuber, BJWC President at 610-858-1351.

The Boyertown Junior Woman’s Club is comprised of a group of dedicated women who volunteer their time and talents to enrich the Boyertown area and beyond with projects benefiting our youth and those in need.  BJWC organization is a member of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC), one of the world’s largest and oldest nonpartisan, nondenominational, women’s volunteer service organizations.
