PAHS Model United Nations Seeking Donations

For the first time ever, Phoenixville Area High School is sending a group of 20 students to Washington D.C. to participate in the Model United Nations. Unfortunately, due to budget cuts in the district, they are forced to fund the trip themselves. This is where you come in. Through the Phoenixville Community Education Foundation, they are hoping to raise $10,000 by the end of February.
At Phoenixville Area High School, the 20 members of the Model United Nations have formed a dream together. Through rigorous study and prodigious preparation, we have prepared ourselves to attend the annual Model United Nations Conference at George Washington University in Washington, DC.

We are a group of devoted and passionate high school students that unite through our love of politics and international affairs but, despite our dedication, we have hit an obstacle. A lack of funding stands in our way. The conference costs are substantial and, due to recent budget cuts, our school is unable to fund our trip. We are seeking monetary donations. Our fundraising goal is to raise $10,000 by February 29, 2011 in order to meet the national registration deadline.

PAHS Branch Model United Nations has become a sponsored club of the Phoenixville Community Education Foundation (PCEF), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Donations will be accepted by PCEF on our behalf, allowing your contribution to be tax deductible to the fullest extent permitted by the law. Checks should be written to PCEF/Model United Nations, and mailed to 1200 Gay Street Phoenixville, PA 19460.

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
