Mr. Spring Show is coming to the Phoenixville Foundry on September 25! All his adult “kid-lings” are asked to attend.

During his 30-year teaching career at the Phoenixville Area Middle School, William Kelly produced some of the finest theatrical performances the Phoenixville Area School District had to offer.

So it should come as no surprise that Mr. Kel, as he is affectionately called, will be the man who helps the Phoenixville Community Education Foundation bring Broadway to Phoenixville in September.

Mr. Kel will be the star of the evening as PCEF presents its Fourth Annual Endowment Gala at the beautifully restored Foundry on Main Street in Phoenixville.

The gala, which begins at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, September 25, will raise money to help the Education Foundation further its Mission of supporting educational programming in the Phoenixville area.

Dance to the sounds of Silver Sounds DJ and enjoy a spectacular spread by Robert Ryan Catering, a proud supporter of the Phoenixville Community Education Foundation since its 2002 inception.

And don’t miss the highlight of the evening – the chance to win a weekend on Broadway.

The winner and a guest will walk out their front door and into a limousine that will whisk them away for a weekend in New York where they will experience the city in celebrity style! From an overnight stay in the city’s world-famous Waldorf-Astoria hotel to Sunday brunch at Central Park’s famed Tavern on the Green, this package is fit for a Broadway star.

In addition, the winner and a guest will have lunch at a Broadway restaurant, two primo matinee seats to a Broadway show of their choice, dinner for two atop Times Square and a visit to one of the city’s grandest museums before taking the limo home*.

Tickets are selling rapidly so don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! The cost of the raffle ticket is $100—while the package is valued at over $2,000! Only 400 will be sold. For information or to purchase tickets, contact Kenneth Krenicky at krenickyk@comcast.net. The winner will be drawn at the Gala. You do not need to be present to win. Proceeds from the raffle benefit the PCEF Endowment Fund.

For tickets to the PCEF Gala, please contact Nan Odenthal, PCEF CEO, at 610.739.1599 or email buffy@appliedvideo.com. Gala tickets are $100; this event is garden party attire.

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…

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'.

Local Business Spotlight: The Fenix

As mentioned a couple of months back, Phoenixville will soon be home to a premium martini and whiskey bar. Named The Fenix, it is owned by the owners of Molly Maguire's and will be located right next door to Molly's at 193 Bridge Stret.

The Fenix hopes to have a soft opening tonight or tomorrow with a grand opening coming in September. I sent an email into General Manager Michael Matarazzo who had this to say regarding the new venture:

---
Opening in September 2008, The Fenix will offer a unique selection of over 15 specialty martinis as well as classic cocktails, fine wines and spirits. An eye-catching menu of delicious food will also be available along with great music and live DJ’s.

The Fenix will create an exciting and varied cocktail party atmosphere every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 4pm. Our guests will enjoy the comfortable lounge for food or a casual after work drink. Later on, they can listen or dance to the best music and DJ’s around or just gather at the sty…
