Meadow Brook Golf Club Hosting Junior Golf Programs This Summer

This summer, Meadow Brook Golf Club will be offering Junior Golf programs for children ages 11-16.
2010 PHOENIXVILLE AREA JUNIOR GOLF PROGRAM
Record snowfall this winter, but Spring is just around the corner. The program has gotten much smaller the last several years so we ask your help in encouraging new families to join.

Registration forms can be downloaded from the http://meadowbrookgc.com website using the program tab on the home page. The form must be signed by a parent or guardian and then mailed.

The clinics at Meadow Brook Golf Club and Fore Seasons Driving Range will be conducted by Mr. Harry Hammond and his staff. Please be sure to check the schedule for each week’s location. Play dates will be at Meadow Brook Golf Club. The 6 and 9 hole players are asked to pay a greens fee to the club. The 11-13 age fee is $3.00 each play day and the 14-16 year old fee is $6.00.

As always, we appreciate all juniors to be properly dressed. This would include appropriate shorts or slacks and preferably shirts with collars. We must be courteous to other golfers as well as the staff of Meadow Brook and Fore Seasons in the clubhouse, parking lots, and on the course or driving range.

Once again we thank those parents who volunteered last year and would like to take the time to express our appreciation and hope to see you again. New volunteers are always welcome especially on the play dates. Please introduce yourself to the committee and let them know you are available to help.

Several Local Businesses Closing Up Shop

Over the next couple of months, three local businesses will be closing their doors.

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…

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'.

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:
