Usborne Books and EDC present the Literacy for a Lifetime 50% Grant Matching Program

Received an email recently from Kristen Caperila, an Independant Educational Consultant, regarding a good cause that can help some local schools:
Usborne Books and EDC present the Literacy for a Lifetime 50% Grant Matching Program
Are you a school or organization looking to purchase new books? Are you a business that wants to give back to the community? Do you know a Sorority or Fraternity that needs a service project? Does your Boy Scout or Girl Scout troop need a community project?

Our Literacy for a Lifetime may be the perfect program for you.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Donations are collected on behalf of a school or organization for the purpose of purchasing books and educational materials.. EDC (Educational Development Corporation) will match those donations with 50 % in books! Donations are tax deductible. For example a local business wants to help out a day care center. That business along with the daycare raise funds for the purchase of new books. Their fundraising efforts total $1,000.00 which will result in $1,500.00 in Usborne books & materials for the daycare!

The organization receiving the books has full control over their selection of Usborne Books. Bookplates may be placed inside each book to recognize your business's effort. The matching grant program can be used as often as donations/grants become available. There is a $200.00 minimum to receive the 50% grant matching portion, but there is no cap on the amount that can be donated or matched!

I would be more than happy to meet with your group to show you our incredible books and explain the program in more detail!

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
