The next Movie Night at Phoenixville Public Library is Thursday, July 9 at 7:00 PM. “Duel” (1971, rated PG, running time 90 min.) will be shown. Dennis Weaver stars in Steven Spielberg’s first notable film, a truly scary made-for-TV exercise in paranoia. A traveling businessman is menaced on the highway by a huge diesel truck. Although he can never see the psychopathic truck driver, he soon realizes that this guy is out to kill him. This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. Those who stay for an informal discussion following the screening may suggest a forthcoming movie. For more information, call 610-933-3013, Ext. 32. Phoenixville Public Library is located at 183 Second Avenue in Phoenixville.
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
