Phoenixville , PA – On Saturday, August 28th, 2010 from 11am-2pm in the Andre Thorton Park (16 Main Street) the Concerned Parents of Phoenixville will be hosting a re-dedication to quality education. As another school year is fast approaching it’s time to become re-dedicated to quality education.

This event will be combined with a grand opening of the new Andre Thornton Park. State Representative Paul Drucker will speak about his new drug free school and park bill. The event is highlighted by Senator Andy Dinniman, as he will bring the 2010 Education Sunday message about moving forward towards academic achievements. Although it’s in the third year in Phoenixville, this is the first time in which all aspect of public education are brought together (Political, Community and the Phoenixville Area School District) for students and teachers.

Education Sunday dates back to 1878 as a national day of prayer and celebration for everyone in the world of education. It has been called the day that faith based organizations join together to offer God the work of education. This year's celebration is to honor the Teachers of East Pikeland and Schuylkill elementary schools in recognition of their academic achievements.

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
