The canine as an Eagles fan: who knew?

POTTSTOWN PA – Memorial Park became a pet lover’s haven again Saturday (Sept. 15, 2018)  during the eighth annual Pottstown Pet Fair, held in the wide open spaces of the West King Street grounds and dedicated to the memory of its founder and chief shepherd, borough resident Bill Sharon. Sharon died only a month ago, still actively planning the big event that was attended by large crowds of humans and animals alike.

Plenty of vendors and visitors attested the event attracted the greatest number of people in its history to date, on a day during which the sun shone as warmly as Sharon’s wide grin. They filled the walkways () along which vendors offered a variety of pet-centric wares
