Get out and help around town this weekend

SoloFloyd, who maintains the Phoenixville Environmental Volunteerism Blog, wrote to let me know about two events that are happening this weekend that could use your help.

The first is a workday for the new Borough park next to Iron Hill by Church Alley. The work day is planned for May 10, 2008 at 10 AM. Click the link for more information from the PEV Blog.

The second chance to help out around town is during the Celtic Street Fair, also being held on Saturday the 10th. The event, which runs from 10am-7pm, needs volunteers to help empty and reline trash cans along Bridge Street. If you are interested, continue to check the PEV Blog as Solofloyd will be providing additional information over the next couple of days.

Also on the Events Calendar on this very blog is the Reservoir Dogs! Park Work Day this Saturday (the 2nd Saturday of each month) from 8 am to noon.

We'll have coffee and donuts for arrivals, then we'll be planting ground cover and native trees, doing general clean-up and creating new wood chip paths.

Come join us!

I notice there are none of the normal complaining bloggers commenting on how they can help make a difference. Amazing how that happens. All of a sudden everyone starts to "turtle up". Step up people!

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.

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. While I don’t have a retail locatio…

Local Non-Profit Spotlight: You Are Worth It Foundation

The You Are Worth It Foundation is a grassroots homeless and in-need outreach group from Phoenixville, PA. Around Phoenixville recently asked Chris Brickhouse for some more information about the Foundation and how you can help:

Tell us a little about You Are Worth It and how it got started:
We are a homeless outreach organizations serving Phoenixville, Pottstown, Norristown, Center City and Kensington in Philly and constantly expanding. We were formed in early 2018 by Dina Rowan and I came on board last June. We have roughly 15 volunteers so far and would like to expand that to expand our reach. We take donated items directly to the people. We provide them with a hot meal and new or lightly used clothing and self-care products. We have long term goals of a mobile shower center, vocational training and assisting with housing in any way possible.

We take a wide array of items - individually packaged food, canned goods, ramen, protein bars, water, self-care…
