Phoenixville Hospital Auxilliary Hosting Annual Holiday Bazaar

On Sunday, Nov. 16, Phoenixville Hospital Auxiliary will be hosting their annual Holiday Bazaar. The event, which features "close to 30 crafters, baked goods, 50/50 tickets, raffle items and a visit by Santa Claus" will be held from 10am-3pm at Solomon's Porch on the campus of Valley Forge Christian College.

From today's Phoenix:

"Our crafters will offer a wide variety of items such as jewelry and woodwork gifts, to hand-sewn and crocheted selections," said (Deb)Francis. "Some of the crafters we have coming in are local and some as far as New Jersey and Philadelphia."

Several crafters returning from last year include Joe Pennypacker, who makes cutting boards out of corian, and Ernie Coccia, who does work working and builds birdhouses.
...
"We're also going to have a classy flea market as well. This is where members of the auxiliary bring in their 'white elephants' — those items that are new but don't serve a useful purpose to those who own it but could assist others. We think it'll be a nice affair."

Francis said that tickets will be sold for two cash prizes.

"First prize is $500 cash, and second prize is $150," she said.

The jolly man from the North Pole, Santa Claus, will be on hand for children to have their picture taken free of charge.

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
