Now that spring is officially here, the fun, outdoor activities are just beginning. If you and your children love to look at cars, “cruze in for a cure,” and support a great cause on May 19. The show starts at 12:00 PM and runs until 4:00 PM. It will be held at Boyertown Community Park and will benefit Relay for Life of Boyertown. There will be music, food, door prizes, and 50/50 tickets, not to mention lots of cool cars to look at, both old and new! If you are interested in entering your own car in the show, please visit www.cruzein4acure.org. If you preregister, the cost is $15.00 and, if you register the day of the event, it is $20.00. Let’s get the children of our community involved in something that affects many families everywhere.
If you cannot make it to the car show, don’t worry; there are many other exciting things to do this month. The Boyertown Pool will opening on May 29 and will be open, daily, between the hours of 12:00 PM – 7:00 PM. For season ticket information, call Boyertown Area YMCA at 610-369-9622.
At the end of May (especially when the pool opens up), is there a single child in Boyertown who doesn’t look forward to Fun Days at Boyertown Community Park? This year, they won’t have to wait as long, because opening day takes place Thursday, May 29 this year! Fun Days will end on Sunday, June 2 at 10:00 AM.
In May, you can never be sure of what the weather will be like. So, if it’s too hot outside, a rainy day, or just any Thursday from May 3 – May 17 that you are looking for something to do, come on out to Boyertown Community Library. Since no registration is required, it makes a great, last minute activity. There will be books, songs, and finger plays from 11:00 AM – 11:45 AM with Miss Barb. The library also has an event on Monday, May 7, from 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM called, “It’s a Girl Thing.” This is a book discussion group for girls who are ages 8 – 12. They will enjoy reading, discussing books, and joining other fun activities. Registration is required for this event, so please get in touch with the library before coming. The group gathers once per month. This is a great way for the young girl(s) in your life to make some new friends, all while building their minds!
Hopefully, this wonderful weather that we have had continues, because there is so much fun for our Boyertown community children to enjoy this month. As this month comes to an end, we will all be looking forward to summertime, especially summer vacation. Stay tuned, there are many more fun adventures to come throughout the year!
