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!

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.
