Steve, a petting farm, mascots, balloon artist Wacky Patty, an obstacle course and fitness activities, a fire truck, a blood mobile, a moon bounce plus a few more surprises are planned.
This year PEAK is again partnering with Pottstown Memorial Medical Center as the main sponsor for the Month of the Young Child events. According to PEAK Coordinator, Mary Rieck, “We are very thankful for the partnership with Pottstown Memorial Medical Center. Pottstown Celebrates Young Children/Healthy Kids Day is a great way to raise awareness for early education and services of the hospital, as well as an enjoyable afternoon for the whole family. We look forward to finding new ways to work with the hospital to help Pottstown’s children enter kindergarten ready to learn and achieve.”
Prior to the main event, pancakes with Trojan Man, the Pottstown School District mascot, can be enjoyed from 9:00 – 11:00 am for $8 for adults and $5 for children 2-10 with proceeds benefitting FCCLA and Trojan Nation, organizations for students focusing on Early Childhood Education and Culinary.
