The Historical Society of the Phoenixville Area will sponsor its second Military Timeline on Saturday, September 10th from 10 AM to 3 PM. What's a military timeline? It's a living history program featuring military re-enactors dressed in historical garb who interact with the public to explain the time period they are depicting and explain their uniforms, equipment and weapons. This free event will be held on the lawn of the Historical Society. Coordinated by Ryan Conroy, re-enactors will cover from the Revolutionary War to the modern era. Also present will be speakers who will give special talks at 11 AM, 1 PM and 2 PM under a tent on the lawn. The Museum will be open during the same hours and features a special exhibit on Phoenixville and the Civil War.

Time: 6 PM

The Tuskegee Airmen were the first African American military aviators in the United States armed forces. The American military and federal government were racially segregated during WWII. The Tuskegee Airmen were subject to racial discrimination, both within and outside the Armed Forces. Despite these adversities, they trained and flew with distinction. The story of these brave patriots needs to be told, and the rare opportunity to hear this story as told by one of the original Airmen, is available for anyone who lives history. The Historical Society banquet will be held at Spring Hollow Golf Club at 6:00 PM on September 21st, 2011. The cost for the talk is $40 and includes choice of dinner entrée. Please contact The Historical Society of the Phoenixville Area at 610-935-7646 or email hspa@verizon.net for an invitation. Reservations must be received by September 14th.

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge?

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.

I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions. While I don’t have a retail locatio…
