3rd Annual Philadephia Area Idiotarod To Be Held August 13th

The Iditarod is the famous 1,150 mile race in which sled dogs pull a sled across Alaska. The Philadelphia Area Idiotarod is pretty much the same thing, except that instead of dogs pulling a sled across Alaska it’s five “idiots” pulling a shopping cart around Phoenixville.The Idiotarod features people in costumes and themed carts. The race, though fun, is competitive and teams have been known to sabotage each other in an effort to win. After the race is over join us for the awards ceremony and afterparty at Molly Maguire's Irish Restaurant and Pub, located at 197 Bridge Street. There will be a free buffet for all Idiotarod team members, and free parking is available in the lot behind Molly's on Main Street.

This year's race will be held on Saturday, August 13th beginning at 1pm. For more information and to register your team, visit the Idiotarod website at phillyidiotarod.weebly.com.

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
