SCA Hosting Annual Holiday Luminaria on December 10th

On Saturday, December 10, the Schuylkill Canal Association will be hosting their annual Holiday Luminaria.
SCA invites you to the Holiday Luminaria, Saturday, December 10, 2011

Celebrate the holidays with the Schuylkill Canal Association as we invite you to join us for the Holiday Luminaria, on Saturday, December 10th, 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. This magnificent holiday light show will be held along the Schuylkill Canal up to Lock 60 and the Locktender’s House in Mont Clare, PA, just across the river from Phoenixville.

See one of the most beautiful sights of the season as you observe the hundreds of luminary candles reflecting on the canal waterway. Towpath Road is lined with candles from the Mont Clare Bridge / Rt. 29, all the way to Lock 60 and surrounding the Locktender’s House. Beginning at dusk, the candles are lit for a spectacular display. If there is a mist or light snowfall the scene is even more beautiful.

The Locktender’s House; built in 1836, is decorated beautifully for the holidays with natural greens and ribbons under soft light throughout the house. Meadowlark, a husband and wife duo playing their fiddle and mandolin, strum soft holiday music inside the house for all to enjoy. And our special guest, Santa Claus, will come for a visit by way of a Mont Clare Fire Truck at 6:30 PM to visit with the children, hand out goodie bags and to spread some holiday cheer.

All are welcome to visit and partake in the festivities of the evening. Holiday treats and beverages will be shared with all as we toast our friends with best wishes for a safe and happy holiday season.

Come to enjoy the entire evening or just to see the beautiful candle light reflect along the canal and towpath. Ample parking is available at Lock 60, candles will light the way to the Locktender’s House and two handicapped spaces are available at the house.

No admission fee is charged however a $1 or more in donations will be gladly accepted. Only a steady downpour of rain cancels the event. The site address is: Lock 60 on the Schuylkill Canal, 400 Towpath Road, Mont Clare, PA 19453. For more information and directions, please call SCA at 610-917-0021, via email at info@schuylkillcanal.com, or visit the web at www.schuylkillcanal.org.

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

Local Business Spotlight: The Fenix

As mentioned a couple of months back , Phoenixville will soon be home to a premium martini and whiskey bar. Named The Fenix, it is owned by the owners of Molly Maguire's and will be located right next door to Molly's at 193 Bridge Stret. The Fenix hopes to have a soft opening tonight or tomorrow with a grand opening coming in September. I sent an email into General Manager Michael Matarazzo who had this to say regarding the new venture: --- Opening in September 2008, The Fenix will offer a unique selection of over 15 specialty martinis as well as classic cocktails, fine wines and spirits. An eye-catching menu of delicious food will also be available along with great music and live DJ’s. The Fenix will create an exciting and varied cocktail party atmosphere every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 4pm. Our guests will enjoy the comfortable lounge for food or a casual after work drink. Later on, they can listen or dance to the best music and DJ’s around or just gather at
