The Run For Dana Marie honors the memory of Dana Marie Carr, a beloved second grader at Schuylkill Elementary School, who died in a tragic automobile accident in 1999. Dana Marie's heart was set on becoming a teacher; the Dana Marie Carr Memorial Fund awards scholarships to two Phoenixville Area High School students who demonstrate the same potential that Dana Marie showed in her short life.

Thank you for sharing in her memory.

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
