Kiwanis Children's Plaza set to open tomorrow

The Children's Plaza I first mentioned last September is set to open tomorrow evening with a ceremony that is to begin at 6:30pm. The Plaza, which is a joint effort between the Phoenixville Kiwanis and the Main Street CDC, is located at Bridge and Bank streets and will be a focal point for families for years to come.

"It's great to see an idea turn into reality with the help of dedicated people," said Hubler. "This plaza will be a gift to the children of Phoenixville for years to come. I look forward to having my own children spend time there."
Barry Cassidy, executive director, Main Street-CDC, who secured the funding for the construction of the plaza, said he hopes the children's area will draw parents of young children to the downtown.
"During the day, it could be a place for mothers to come with their young children by the fountain, and on Saturday mornings, we'll do little story hours," said Cassidy. "At night, when children aren't there, there will be silent movies being shown, from dusk to about 11 p.m. It's a way of making the downtown more of a destination."

For those who are interested, The Kiwanis Club is currently offering bricks for sale that can be inscribed with the names of loved ones or businesses as a means of raising funds. For more information on the plaza or how to purchase a brick, please see the Phoenixville Kiwanis website.

I bought a brick for my kids and love the Sinatra-sounding gentleman who was singing next to Brown's cow July 20th.
