Get SCARED! at the Phoenixville Public Library

Strange lights in the Friends’ of the Library book room. Reports of disembodied footsteps in the attic. A ghostly little girl who runs back and forth, playfully, through the sensor beam in the Children’s Library...

Are these tales fact or fiction? You be the judge.

Join the cast and crew of SCARED! as they take you on a virtual tour of the Phoenixville Public Library after dark when ghosts are said to roam. Following a 46-minute screening of the show, the floor will be open to questions about all things paranormal and then – the grand finale.

Team up with the crew of SCARED! as they guide you through your own paranormal investigation of the library! Take notes, use some of their ghost hunting equipment and compare your findings with the experts.

Don’t miss the incredible opportunity to work alongside the pros in the world of ghost hunting! SCARED! at the Phoenixville Library begins at 7 p.m. on Saturday, October 24. Seating is limited for this one-time event so purchase your tickets early. Tickets are $20 each, two for $30.

SCARED! is a paranormal reality series produced by CORE Films, Inc. Created by Christopher Mancuso and Brian J. Cano, the series has grown from urban exploration to conducting full-blown paranormal investigations with the aid of a psychic and a multitude of equipment.

The show began as Scared on Staten Island in 2002, but in 2004 changed its name to SCARED!, giving the crew the freedom to investigate outside the New York City borough. In addition to their many Staten Island shoots, SCARED! has investigated locations such as Byberry and Eastern State Penitentiary, both in Philadelphia; Danvers State Insane Asylum in Massachusetts, the Portsmouth Lighthouse in New Hampshire, and the famous Shanley Hotel in Napanoch, New York.

At least one episode of SCARED! has been featured at the SINY Film Festival in Staten Island each year since 2006. In 2008, SCARED!’s Shanley Hotel episode won Best Editing at the Director’s Chair Film Festival, and are currently nominated again for Best Film, Best Documentary, Best Sound, Best Editing, and Best Local Work at the 2009 festival.

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
