Dogwood Festival Dunk Tank- volunteers needed
The Dogwood Festival is just around the corner, May 10th to the 15th. Rides, games, food, and fun will be filling Reeves Park.

This year, the Phoenixville Jaycees will be running a dunk tank everyday of the festival and we are looking for leaders of the community to "dunk." The funds raised will help us continue to put on great events such as the Burn Off the Bird 5k, Date Auction, and Community Cleanups all of which allow us to give back to the community.

We are looking for people to get a little bit wet from Monday May 10th to Friday May 14th from 6pm until 9pm and on Saturday May 15th from 4pm until 9pm.

If you are available, please contact me at jenniferandre@comcast.net with what date(s) and time(s) you can participate.

For more information about the Dogwood Festival, please visit the Phoenixville Jaycees website or send them an email at phoenixvillejaycee@gmail.com.

La Crêperie Café Bis Opens

Yesterday, Phoenixville's newest cafe opened. La Crêperie Café Bis, located at the corner of Bridge and Gay Streets at the base of the Gay St. Bridge, opened its doors at 11am. As you can probably guess by its name, La Crêperie features both sweet and savory crêpes which, owner Marietou Fanny says, are made with only fresh ingredients. Fanny also owns a restaurant in Center City in Philadelphia called La Crêperie Café, which has been open for nine years.

La Crêperie is open seven days a week. Hours are Monday-Friday from 11am-10pm, Saturday 11am-11pm and Sunday from 10am-7pm.

Best of luck to Marietou and her staff!

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…
