Did the writer of this article actually look at the web site before claiming an update?

There is no new information that you claim in this article...the calendar and entertainment list is still from 2006

Try clicking the refresh button in your browser and if that doesn't work hold down the CTRL button and click refresh. The Jaycee site has definitely been updated, I assume you are seeing an old version of their site.

Thanks...I had repeatedly refreshed my page without success, but it took the CTRL/refresh combination to get to the updated page.

This year's lineup has been very late in being announced (and there are still several 'TBA's on the schedule....including today). I wonder what has caused these apparent difficulties with getting a lineup together this time around?

not to worry, if you click on any of the Dogwood links at the top of the page you are still taken to the '06 information.

Good news - the Jaycees changed family wristband night to Thursday to give people a chance to enjoy the festival after Wednesday's rains! $17 gets you unlimited rides.

La Crêperie Café Bis Opens

Yesterday, Phoenixville's newest cafe opened. La Crêperie Café Bis, located at the corner of Bridge and Gay Streets at the base of the Gay St. Bridge, opened its doors at 11am. As you can probably guess by its name, La Crêperie features both sweet and savory crêpes which, owner Marietou Fanny says, are made with only fresh ingredients. Fanny also owns a restaurant in Center City in Philadelphia called La Crêperie Café, which has been open for nine years.

La Crêperie is open seven days a week. Hours are Monday-Friday from 11am-10pm, Saturday 11am-11pm and Sunday from 10am-7pm.

Best of luck to Marietou and her staff!

Several Local Businesses Closing Up Shop

Over the next couple of months, three local businesses will be closing their doors.

On Saturday, February 16th, Polka Dots will be closing their store at 246 Bridge Street. The shop, a women's clothing boutique, opened nearly two and a half years ago but has recently found business slow.

Originally, (owner Susan) Randels said that the store was doing well, but that the momentum could not keep up.

"The things that sold in Paoli didn't sell in Phoenixville," she said, adding that some customers thought that the store was too expensive or the sizing did not go high enough (size 12 being the highest size sold). "We tried everything."

Randels also said that parking was an issue for many of her customers who could either not find spaces or did not feel safe parking behind the store.

Polka Dots remains open until the 16th, with hours on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. The phone number is 610-935-5914. Clothing and shoes are bei…
