Tis the Season

With the holiday's rapidly approaching, several local businesses are getting into the spirit by holding various events to raise money/collect items for those less fortunate.

On November 8th, Valley Forge Pizza will be donating part of their profits for the day to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN). November is National Pancreatic Cancer Month and PanCAN is trying to raise funds for research into pancreatic cancer and patient support. If you are in the area, please consider stopping in for a very good cause.

On November 9th and 10th, Artisan’s Gallery and Cafe will be holding a 'Empty Bowls Campaign'. On these two days, you can buy a bowl of soup at Artisan's in a hand crafted bowl which is your's to keep. The price for the bowl of soup is $15 and all proceeds go to the following local charities: Phoenixville Area Community Services, Camphill Village of Kimberton Hills, and Community Gardens of Chester County. The idea is to help raise awareness on the issues of hunger and will help these three charities continue to do the great work they do. For more information visit Artisan’s at 236 Bridge Street, or call PACS at 610-933-1105 for information or to reserve a bowl.

Finally, several local businesses will be participating in Toys for Tots this year. They are: The Phoenix, 225 Bridge Street; Redner's Warehouse Markets, 202 Schuylkill Road; The UPS Store, 518 Kimberton Road; O'Grady’s Restaurant, 273 Schuylkill Road; Phoenixville Hospital, 140 Nutt Road; Phoenix Karate, 243 Bridge Street; Gateway Pharamacy, 165 Nutt Road; Amerikick Karate, 280 Schuylkill Road.
All of these businesses will have huge Toys For Tots boxes available for new toys to be dropped off for donation.

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
