The Phoenixville Community Health Foundation, as a part of its celebrating ten years of service to the Greater Phoenixville community, will be the lead sponsor for the Borough’s September 8th fireworks event to be held at Friendship Field on Phoenixville’s Northside. The gates will be open to the public at 6 p.m. The rain date for this event, if necessary, is Sunday, September 9th also at Friendship Field at 6 p.m.

Besides being an evening of recognition and celebration for the foundation, this event is being held also in recognition and celebration of the many dedicated volunteers who tirelessly work in the many service groups throughout our community.

Entertainment, starting at 6:30 p.m. will be provided prior to the fireworks and sponsored by the Community Development Committee of Borough Council.

The fireworks display will begin at approximately 9 p.m. after total darkness occurs.

The public is encouraged to bring picnic baskets, blankets, and lawn chairs to the festivities.

We hope to see many of you there!

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm. For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page , to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community. As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website
