Phoenixville Jaycees Hosting Beef and Beer August 8

From the Phoenixville Jaycees blog:
Up next on our agenda is a beef and beer fundraiser at the Polish Club in Phoenixville on Saturday, Aug. 8 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. The event will feature live music from The Tragics, a local rock band comprised of bass guitarist and singer Chris Bailey, guitar player and singer Adam Karros, drummer Ant Arra and keyboardist and saxophone player Mike Hoffman.

I've been listening to these guys for a while and even coached one when he played ice hockey in high school (you know who you are!). Needless to say these guys are awesome and we really appreciate them coming out to do this for us.

In addition to The Tragics, there will be 50/50s and raffles for prizes such as tickets to the Lehigh Valley IronPigs.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Jaycees, who will in turn find some way to put that money back into the community.

Tickets for the event are $25 and will get you roast beef (obviously), side salads, beer, desserts, soda and water. Tickets are available at Wolfgang Books, 237 Bridge Street, 2nd Floor and Foresta's Market or by contacting the Jaycess at phoenixvillejaycees@gmail.com.

Hope to see you there!!!

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

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. While I don’t have a retail loca
