Free Employment Workshop Scheduled for Phoenixville Public Library

A free 12 Steps Toward EmploymentTM workshop to aid Chester County’s unemployed and underemployed, including recent college students, in seeking, obtaining and retaining suitable employment will be held from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, October 6, at the Phoenixville Public Library, 183 Second Avenue, Phoenixville.

The session is one of an ongoing series of workshops that are part of the Road to Employment initiative established by the Chester County Workforce Investment Board (WIB) to focus on many often-missed steps in undertaking a successful job search, from the time one learns or decides he or she will be seeking employment through the first few months of a new job, a time when persons often become unemployed again for a variety of reasons.

Required registration information for limited available seats at individual workshops, additional job-seeking tools, additional workshops as they are scheduled, and downloadable fliers that can be posted or forwarded to individuals in need, may be obtained at www.chesco.org/JobSeekerToolkit.

Additional information on this initiative is available from Casey Jones, workshop presenter, at bps461@msn.com or (610) 707-1494.

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
