Special Performance of Nunsense to benefit Phoenixville Area Time Bank

Reader Margo Ketchum wrote in to tell about an upcoming event to help raise money for the Phoenixville Area Time Bank.

---
Mark your calendar for Sunday afternoon, November 9th, 2pm, for some pure fun. The Forge Theatre, at 241 First Avenue in Phoenixville, has offered Phoenixville Area Time Bank a special showing of the popular musical comedy Nunsense to benefit the organization.

Now in its 25th year, Nunsense has gained a big following across the country and around the world, with a fan club, sequels, and a special website. The story features five rather diverse and somewhat wacky nuns who take over a high school stage set, to raise money for the burial of their poor sisters who the cook accidentally poisoned. They sing, they dance, and they get you, the audience, involved!

Tickets are $20, available by reservation (610-608-9261 / timedollar@verizon.net), or picked up at New Century Bank in Kimberton.

The non-profit Phoenixville Area Time Bank offers local individuals a chance to help each other out, one-on-one or with group projects. They help rebuild neighborhood networks and strengthen the community. The Time Bank was recently featured on the front page of The Phoenix as an alternative economy (Oct. 4th 2008 edition).

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.
