Boyertown Area Se­nior High School has an­nounced an open house to cel­e­brate the open­ing of the newly ren­o­vated fa­cil­ity as the con­struc­tion process has reached com­ple­tion.

The open house will be held Saturday, Oct. 21, from 1-4 p.m. at Boyertown Area Se­nior High, 120 North Mon­roe Street. The pub­lic will then be able to tour the fa­cil­ity, in­clud­ing the old high school build­ing which has now be­come the Fresh­man Academy.

The event will start with a rib­bon cut­ting cer­e­mony as well as plac­ing the 2017 date stone and time cap­sule.

Since the high school has been ren­o­vated and added on to over a long pe­riod of time, the build­ing has a date-stone mark­ing the com­ple­tion of each of the stages. The dates high­lighted up un­til this point in­clude 1922, 1934, 1955 and 1994. The re­quest for a 2017 date-stone was ap­proved last year, Septem­ber 2016, by the board in ad­di­tion to the re­lo­ca­tion of the 1994 date-stone and time cap­sule which had to be re­moved dur­ing con­struc­tion.

The school board ap­pointed and ap­proved the con­tract with D’Huy En­gi­neer­ing back in April 23, 2013, to pro­vide con­struc­tion man­age­ment ser­vices for the multi-mil­lion dol­lar ad­di­tion/ren­o­va­tion project.

The en­tire Boyertown Area School District com­mu­nity is in­vited to at­tend the open house.
