Help a local help others

Fellow Phoenixville resident Christine McKaig will be participating in the St. Anthony's Triathalon to help raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training (TNT) program. From her email:
Hi All - I hope everyone is having a great new year! I have made the commitment to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training (TNT) program, to help ensure that strides are taken to defeat cancer. I am raising money for LLS and in turn training for my first official Triathlon, and an Olympic distance one at that (0.9 mi swim, 25 mi bike, 6.2 mi run). I have committed to raising $4,600 before my triathlon on April 25th – I want to exceed my goal to allow for more money to directly serve our local patients. All of us in TNT are training and fundraising to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. I have joined the fight against blood cancers, and want more than anything to find cures for all cancers!

I was sure that Team in Training was the right organization for me when I heard that 75% of the money raised goes directly to fund research, patient advocacy, and patient services. I have attached the link to my website where you can donate on-line using a credit card. I recognize that we are in the midst of hard financial times, but remember that no donation is too small and all will be greatly appreciated! Many companies offer matching gift programs, so please let me know if your company is one of them. Also, all donations are tax-deductible.

Thank you in advance for your generosity! Be sure to check my website frequently to see my progress!

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 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
