Kristen Caperila, local independent education consultant for Usborne Books, is helping raise money for three local groups:
  • Stepping Stone Education Center - Preparing pre-schoolers for life...One step at a time! Click on Fundraising and shop the Usborne link to help them earn 15% on all sales.
  • Buried With Dignity - This incredible organization's goal is to provide memorial stones for children in the Greater Philadelphia area whose families cannot afford them, so every child can be "buried with dignity". Visit their website and look for the Usborne Books link at the bottom of the home page, 10% of all sales placed through that link go to this wonderful organization. While visiting their site you can also make a donation directly to BWD!
  • Renaissance Academy Charter School - Click here to help the Renaissance Academy's Family School Organization. 15% of all sales will go to the FSO.

I just wanted to say that this blog is one of the few decent ones as it pertains to Phoenixville. No whinning or crying like Buckwalter and Johns, just useful facts.

Keep up the good work.

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
