Members of Pottstown High School Air Force Junior ROTC Unit and Health Occupations club helped to keep the YMCA Halloween Safe House safe.  Students from both groups pitched in to set up the scary display and then provided activities, supervision, and of course  treats for over 950 area children.  Col. Jake Porter, commander of the ROTC unit, said, “We are happy to be able to assist the YMCA in providing a family-friendly and child-safe event for so many youngsters.  Our cadets enjoy this event and particularly liked putting on the superhero costumes.”

Michaela Johnson, Pottstown High School’s Health Occupations teacher and sponsor of the Health Occupations Club, expressed, “The enthusiasm of our students for this event was contagious.  They enjoyed working with the youngsters and providing a time of safe fun for all.”

Joan Daly, the Executive Director of the Pottstown YMCA, expressed her thanks, “I would like to thank the Pottstown High School students for volunteering their time.  They showed a very positive attitude and participated by dressing up for the occasion and showing off their best superhero powers.  At the end of the night, they stayed to help clean up after the event and displayed the spirit of true community service.”
