PHOENIXVILLE JAYCEES PRESENT ANNUAL LIVE NATIVITY SUN. DEC. 16

PHOENIXVILLE — The Phoenixville Jaycees will be bringing some holiday spirit to Reeves Park this Sunday, December 16, at 6 p.m., by re-enacting the nativity with live animals and carols performed by members of the Phoenixville Area High School Choral Program.

2007 Dogwood Queen Maria Konstantinidis will be reading the nativity story between carols and members of the Phoenixville Jaycees will re-create the manger scene. Public participation in singing carols is encouraged.

“The Live Nativity has been a Phoenixville tradition for 26 years,” said Jaycees President Megan Thomas. “The Jaycees are delighted to be able to host events like the Live Nativity to be able to spread holiday cheer and bring members of the community together.”

The event is rain-or-shine. Walkways leading into the bandshell of Reeves Park will be lined with luminaries set up by the Jaycees.

The Jaycees would like to thank Jan Swarr, the Wertz family in Chester Springs, Pa. for providing the animals and Mrs. Kate Nice, Director of the Phoenixville Area High School Choral Program.

The Phoenixville Jaycees have been creating a better community since 1952 and are constantly striving to make Phoenixville a better place to live through the hard work and dedication of its nearly 40 members.

For more information or to schedule an interview with Jaycees President Megan Thomas, please feel free to contact Public Relations Director Shane Dilworth at shane_dilworth@hotmail.com.

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
