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.

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…
