“We feel it was a fab­u­lous suc­cess — and hope with word-of-mouth that even more peo­ple, if not twice as many or more — will come out next year for this event pro­mot­ing com­mu­nity fel­low­ship and the beauty of down­town Pottstown, as well as lo­cal restau­rants and other ven­dors,” said Cathy Sk­itko, one of the or­ga­niz­ers and se­nior di­rec­tor of pub­lic re­la­tions and com­mu­ni­ca­tions for The Hill School and Ho­barts Run.

“There were more than 100 guests, many of whom had never met each other be­fore, which made this event even more spe­cial and ex­cit­ing,” she said..

Com­ments in emails and on var­i­ous Face­book pages that have shared the pho­tos in­cluded “I hope to come back next year!” , “The set­ting was lovely and the white sparkled un­der the lights…I ap­pre­ci­ate all the prepa­ra­tion and thank you for a job well done” ac­cord­ing to Sk­itko.

“It was great to see all my fa­vorite peo­ple and en­joy the won­der­ful culi­nary of Pottstown. Also, the live en­ter­tain­ment was amaz­ing - es­pe­cially, Maddy and Mickey Ramirez. Thank you… for bring­ing this event to our com­mu­nity,” said out­go­ing school board mem­ber Emanuel Wilk­er­son.
