Annual Candelight Holiday Tour taking place this Saturday

The annual Phoenixville Candelight Holiday Tour is taking place on Saturday, December 1st from 4-8pm. The tour, which is entering its 7th year, opens the doors to a dozen private residences around town. From the press release on the PASD website:

---
The 2007 tour will be the largest and most comprehensive in the candlelight tour's seven year history. A major attraction on this year's tour will be the new home of the Phoenixville Community Health Foundation. This stately mansion houses a circular staircase which was featured in the comic strip "Bringing Up Father". For many years Phoenixville has been a popular site for motion picture filming. The film "4D Man" with Lee Meriwether was filmed in the dining room of another home showcased on the tour. The Schuylkill River Heritage Center will be open to patrons. Among the 12 private homes on the tour is a meticulously restored house that served as the original Phoenixville Hospital in the 1890s. Each year the tour features beautifully decorated homes, houses of worship, adaptive re-use, music and entertainment.

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

I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions. While I don’t have a retail loca
