National Night Out Success

  “I think every town should do this,” said JR Bach, Royersford Night Out chairman. “This year as a committee, we noticed that across the country police were getting a bad rap. Yeah there were some bad incidences where stuff was going on but 99 percent of the police officers out there are good guys.”

 National Night Out was a big success this year, particularly for Pottstown and Royersford. Check out Mercury reporters Evan Brandt (@PottstownNews on Twitter) and Eric Devlin's (@Eric_Devlin on Twitter) coverage of all the fun.
