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.

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? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

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.

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery, was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery:
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…
