Phoenixville Jaycees Celebrating Earth Day with Downtown Cleanup

The Phoenixville Jaycees will be honoring Earth Day—in advance—with a Downtown Cleanup on Sunday, April 5th beginning at noon, rain or shine.

“The goal of the Jaycees is to have a positive impact on our community,” said Jaycees
President Shane Dilworth. “The downtown is a jewel and is used by everyone.”

Jaycees members will meet at Headquarters (8 Gay Street) at noon to disperse teams
throughout the downtown. The cleanup will focus on the 100–300 blocks of Bridge
Street, the unit blocks of Gay and Main Streets, the 200 block of Church Street, as well as the Prospect Street and Bridge Street parking lots.

The event is not limited to Jaycees members; “we have sought out and received
positive responses from the business owners, the Kiwanis, Whitehorse Rugby, and the
borough,” said event organizer David Boelker. “We also encourage residents to pitch in and join us that day, even if for thirty minutes,” said Boelker.

The Jaycees request that volunteers bring a pair of work gloves that day. The Jaycees
would like to thank those that have volunteered their time or donated items to this
event: Hipster Home, Steel City Coffee House, Franco Ristorante, and Phoenixville Borough.

The Phoenixville Jaycees have been creating a better community since 1952 and are
constantly striving to make Phoenixville a better place to live through the hard work and dedication of its members. The Jaycees meet on the 2nd Thursday of every month at their Headquarters, 8 Gay Street, Phoenixville, PA 19460.

La Crêperie Café Bis Opens

Yesterday, Phoenixville's newest cafe opened. La Crêperie Café Bis, located at the corner of Bridge and Gay Streets at the base of the Gay St. Bridge, opened its doors at 11am. As you can probably guess by its name, La Crêperie features both sweet and savory crêpes which, owner Marietou Fanny says, are made with only fresh ingredients. Fanny also owns a restaurant in Center City in Philadelphia called La Crêperie Café, which has been open for nine years.

La Crêperie is open seven days a week. Hours are Monday-Friday from 11am-10pm, Saturday 11am-11pm and Sunday from 10am-7pm.

Best of luck to Marietou and her staff!

Several Local Businesses Closing Up Shop

Over the next couple of months, three local businesses will be closing their doors.

On Saturday, February 16th, Polka Dots will be closing their store at 246 Bridge Street. The shop, a women's clothing boutique, opened nearly two and a half years ago but has recently found business slow.

Originally, (owner Susan) Randels said that the store was doing well, but that the momentum could not keep up.

"The things that sold in Paoli didn't sell in Phoenixville," she said, adding that some customers thought that the store was too expensive or the sizing did not go high enough (size 12 being the highest size sold). "We tried everything."

Randels also said that parking was an issue for many of her customers who could either not find spaces or did not feel safe parking behind the store.

Polka Dots remains open until the 16th, with hours on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. The phone number is 610-935-5914. Clothing and shoes are bei…
