Kiwanis Spaghetti Dinner & Silent Auction to be held February 4th

The Kiwanis Club of Phoenixville will hold a spaghetti dinner and silent auction on Saturday, February 4, 2012 at the Kimberton Fire Company. The event is being held by the Kiwanis Club in partnership with the Firebird Children’s Theater which provides theater opportunities to children of the area. A spaghetti dinner, provided by Franco’s Italian Restorante, will be served from 5:30 to 7 PM with the auction beginning at 7 PM. Hundreds of items will be up for bid in the silent auction with several special items offered in a live auction.

Over the years, the Kiwanis Club has partnered with various community groups to support their programs. This year’s dinner/auction will aid the Firebird Children’s Theater in extending the theater experience to more children in our community and will also support Kiwanis Club projects to benefit children. Past dinner/auctions have raised almost $90,000 and have helped furnish a children’s medical examination room at The Clinic, helped fund the summer reading program of the Phoenixville Library and build a new playground for Barkley Elementary School. Recent dinner/auctions have provided scholarships to the summer camp program of the Community That Cares organization and helped build playgrounds at Franklin Commons for Stepping Stones and Phoenixville Children’s Learning Center.

Tickets to the dinner/auction are $12 in advance and $15 at the door. It is strongly recommended that tickets be purchased in advance as total ticket sales are limited to 400 persons. Tickets may be purchased through the Kiwanis Club of Phoenixville (610-933-9575) or the Firebird Children’s Theater (610-324-8425) or from members of both organizations.

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? 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…
