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.

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery, was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery:
I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. 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.
