Tomorrow Night is National Night Out

From The Phoenix this weekend:
Phoenixville will be one of 15,500 communities to participate in National Night Out on Aug. 2.

The national event was started in 1984 and has grown throughout the years, according to NNO’s website, www.nationalnightout.org.

According to NNO, the purpose of the event is “to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.”

In Phoenixville, community members can choose from three locations for NNO.

Town Watch is coordinating two of the NNO events. One will be held at Andre Thornton Park and the other is at Reeves Park. The Town Watch’s NNO will be held from 7 to 9 p.m.

Royal Bank America is hosting its NNO event from 6 to 9 p.m. at its Phoenixville location, 808 Valley Forge Road.

Town Watch President Michael Hill said there will be a grill pit at Andre Thornton Park. Food will be available from Bridgeside Deli and Grille. Alexsolre Mobile DJ will be playing some tunes.

Attendees can meet officers from the Phoenixville Police Department at both of the parks. Children can get their faces painted during NNO. The State Farm Safety Bear will also be in attendance.

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
