Spring has arrived, what better time to plant a tree(s)?


Reader SoloFloyd (aka Randy to the outside world) wrote to inform me of two upcoming events which are certainly worth a mention. Well, to be exact, its one event and one series of events which kicked off this past weekend.

The first is a 'Tree Block Party' being held on the 200 block of Church St on Saturday, April 12th. The party, which is being hosted by both the residents of Church St as well as the Shade Tree Commission will feature the planting of some 40 trees along both sides of Church as well as an appearance by none other than Smokey the Bear.

The second is a series of events aimed at cleaning Pickering Preserve as well as planting 29 new trees on the property. The first of these events was held last Sunday and they will continue every Sunday throughout the month of April. These events are held from 1-3pm.

With these events in mind, and the hope for more in the future, Randy has started a blog, Phoenixville Environmental Volunteerism Blog, that he intends to use to promote similar activities. He has also agreed to keep the Events section of this site updated with these events. Be sure to check out both places for upcoming events!

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'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.
