PAHS’s Operation FOCUS Receives Grant from PCEF

PCEF Board Member Kelly Connors presents a check sized for a superhero to Phoenixville Area High School’s Operation FOCUS’s Debbie McGinn.
Phoenixville Community Education Foundation (PCEF) Board Members Kelly Connors and Sharon Bauer stopped by a meeting at Phoenixville Area High School last night armed with a giant check.

On behalf of PCEF, they awarded a $3,000 grant to Operation FOCUS (For Our Children’s Uncompromised Safety) in support of the PAHS post-prom party being held for the 12th year.

The mission of Operation FOCUS is to provide a safe alternative to other parties where drugs and alcohol may be present, parties that may be unsupervised, or situations that can lead to destructive decisions.

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

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
