On Sunday, October 19, 2008, Camphill Village Kimberton Hills will celebrate the grand reopening of the Camphill Café with a concert and reception featuring Ensemble Casa de Venezuela, the Delaware Valley ’s premier Venezuelan musicians.

The concert begins at 2 p.m. in Rose Hall. Following the concert, guests will have the opportunity to meet the ensemble at a reception in the newly renovated Camphill Café. The reception is sponsored by Kimberton Whole Foods.

The café’s renovations include an expanded seating area, including an outdoor terrace, and sustainable building elements including geothermal heating and cooling, Solatubes, and Silestone countertops. Camphill architect Joan Allen partnered with Carnevale Eustis Architects, Inc., on the design and construction documents.

The Camphill Café, which in addition to serving locally-grown, organic food, provides vocational education and training for adults with developmental disabilities. Village residents with disabilities who work there enjoy interacting with customers, and learn valuable skills of customer service by working in a restaurant environment.

Ensemble Casa de Venezuela will share the roots and love for Venezuelan music, folklore and traditions.

Ticket prices are $20 for concert only; $35 for concert and reception. Seating and reception tickets are limited. To purchase tickets, contact Bernadette@camphillkimberton.org or 610-935-0300 ext. 12.

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
