The Banff Mountain Film Festival is one not to miss. I've been involved in it since its inception over 10 years ago and it just gets better every year. There's always a great variety of films ranging from outdoor thrills to extreme comedy to serious environmental & social issues. This is a must-not-miss weekend of cinema!

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'.

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. While I don’t have a retail locatio…
