Farewell to summer
100 turn out for second annual Fete en Blanc
POTTSTOWN » More than 100 people said goodbye to summer with style recently when the Fete en Blanc event was held in Smith Family Plaza on High Street.
“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.
