POTTSTOWN PA – To pay for the demolition of its deteriorated tower, the congregation of First Baptist Church will conduct a fund-raising concert April 23 (2017; Sunday) at 3 p.m. in the church at King and Charlotte Streets, titled “Songs For The Young At Heart.” Tickets are available now.
The musical show features the talents of Joe Ceresi, Maggie Riker, David and Lisa Heffner, Teri Hoffman, Tim Raub, Dr. Myra Forrest, and other performers. Refreshments will follow. Tickets are priced at $25 for adults, and $10 for children age 12 and younger. They can be purchased by calling 610-326-2273, or by sending an e-mail here. Wheelchair access is available by calling the church in advance.
Structural problems with the steeple and tower of the church, located in downtown Pottstown, were discovered last fall. King and Charlotte streets were temporarily closed during weeks in September and October 2016 while the steeple was removed.
