More information on this weekends activities

Today's Phoenix had two articles regarding festivities being held in town on Friday and Saturday. Tomorrow night will be the September First Friday as well as the final concert in the Summer Music Series. Headlining the concert is Splintered Sunlight, a pretty well known and respected Grateful Dead cover band who I believe played the final Music Series date last year as well. I have seen these guys live and if you enjoy the Dead it will be well worth checking out.

The other big event taking place tomorrow night is at the Phoenix Village Art Center, located at 207 Bridge Street. They will be hosting a Fashion Illustrations exhibit featuring the work of Freda Hirsch and a Sculptural Forms exhibit by Florence Umanoff. The exhibits will run concurrently from 6-9pm.

On Saturday night, the Phoenixville Community Health Foundation will be throwing a party to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Foundation’s Day Of Recognition. The festival, which will take place at Freedom Field on the north side of town, will feature live music, vendors, food and a moon bounce for the little ones. Capping it off will be a fireworks display starting at around 9pm (weather permitting).

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
