Phoenix Writers, a group for adult writers, will have its first meeting at Phoenixville Public Library on Monday, June 6 from 7:00 to 9:00 PM. Meeting monthly on the first Monday of the month, the group will offer writers education, empowerment, and constructive criticism. The sessions will be led by local author Raymond Rose and will provide writers the opportunity to ask questions about the writing process, read their work out loud, and receive and offer input on the material read. Writers wishing to have their work critiqued should submit their work to Raymond Rose prior to each meeting. The group is free and open to the public. To submit writing samples or for more information, e-mail Raymond Rose at firstname.lastname@example.org. Phoenixville Public Library is located at 183 Second Avenue, Phoenixville, PA.
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
