Each quarter, The Hand Crafted Cookie Company chooses a local organization whose work they believe is important to make a donation to. For the first quarter of 2010, they have chosen Mom's House on Church St. They will make a donation of 5% of all sales, up to $500, plus whatever amount their customers donate during that time. Last quarter, they raised $536 for PACS and, the quarter before, $594 for Citizen Advocacy of Chester County. They have set a goal of at least $600 for this quarter. So stop in, have some great cookies and help a good cause in the process!
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
