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.

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
