The Relay For Life of Phoenixville Kickoff Celebration will be held from 4-9pm on Monday, October 12th.
"Relay For Life of Phoenixville Kickoff Celebration!"
PHOENIXVILLE -- Philadelphia changes the lights on Liberty 1 and Liberty 2 to honor those fighting it. NFL players wear pink cleats and gloves to support those enduring it. Everybody has had some kind of contact with it and it can affect anyone.

It is cancer, and Phoenixville is fighting the battle to cure it.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so when you think pink… THINK PINK! Join us on the Pink Patio at Petrucci’s Ice Cream and Water Ice, Nutt Road in Phoenixville, as we kick off Relay For Life of Phoenixville on Monday, October 12, 4 p.m. – 9 p.m.

Enjoy music of Lew Seeders and stock up on your favorite treats before Petrucci’s closes for the season. No coupons are necessary! Petrucci’s owners John and Mary Colarusso will donate 50% of the sales during Kickoff to Relay!

Plus, register your team, register as a survivor or caregiver, or register your canine friends for Phoenixville Bark For Life, which will be held Saturday, October 24th in Reeves Park!

Relay For Life of Phoenixville will be held on Friday, May 7 and Saturday, May 8, 6 p.m. – 1 p.m., at Washington Field, Phoenixville Area High School, Phoenixville.
Team Captains’ meetings and information sessions will be held on the third Monday of each month at 6:45 p.m. at the Bistro at Franklin Commons, 400 Franklin Avenue in Phoenixville.

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:
