PACS Hosting Empty Bowls Dinner Event on Friday, November 13th

As part of its Holidays from Hunger program, Phoenixville Area Community Services (PACS) will hold an Empty Bowls Dinner Event at Artisans Gallery & Café 236 Bridge Street, Phoenixville, on Friday, November 13, 2009, from 5 to 8 pm.

Begun in Michigan in 1990 by a group of students who were looking for a project to help support a food drive in their community, The Empty Bowls Project has spread throughout the world including our Phoenixville Community.

This year, local artists and students, (including some from Phoenixville High School, many other schools, and day camps) are creating the ceramic bowls. This project is also being supported by donations from many Phoenixville merchants, restaurants and community volunteers.

You can help eliminate hunger in the greater Phoenixville community by purchasing a ticket for $20. Come to Artisans Cafe on November 13th and start by selecting a handcrafted bowl.

Then, hop into the soup line for a simple meal of soup and bread. You keep the ceramic bowl as a reminder of the need to end hunger locally and globally.

Tickets are available at PACS office Monday through Friday 9:00 am until 4:30 pm and Artisans Gallery and Café during business hours or by calling 610-933-1105 Ext. 213 or emailing development@pacsphx.org.

Thank you for helping us provide Holidays from Hunger for families in need!

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'.

La Crêperie Café Bis Opens

Yesterday, Phoenixville's newest cafe opened. La Crêperie Café Bis, located at the corner of Bridge and Gay Streets at the base of the Gay St. Bridge, opened its doors at 11am. As you can probably guess by its name, La Crêperie features both sweet and savory crêpes which, owner Marietou Fanny says, are made with only fresh ingredients. Fanny also owns a restaurant in Center City in Philadelphia called La Crêperie Café, which has been open for nine years.

La Crêperie is open seven days a week. Hours are Monday-Friday from 11am-10pm, Saturday 11am-11pm and Sunday from 10am-7pm.

Best of luck to Marietou and her staff!
