Camphill Kimberton celebrates AmeriCorps Week with a Community Volunteer Day

Camphill Village Kimberton Hills will celebrate AmeriCorps Week - Saturday, March 10 through Sunday, March 18, 2012 - with a volunteer work day set for Sunday, March 18 from noon to 4 p.m.

This is a great opportunity to learn more about Camphill Kimberton and AmeriCorps while giving back to your community. Come experience a day of work on this 432-acre biodynamic farm and help with invasive species removal, estate work and orchard maintenance.

AmeriCorps offers opportunities for adults of all ages and backgrounds to serve through a network of partnerships with local and national nonprofit groups. AmeriCorps week recognizes the commitment of AmeriCorps members and alums by highlighting the extraordinary impact they make across our nation every day. Each year, Camphill Kimberton is host to approximately 20-25 young adults who receive a year-long intensive, hands-on experience living and working in this community that includes adults with developmental disabilities. Of this group, half are AmeriCorps participants.

Volunteers are asked to bring their own lunch and shovels, gloves and trowels, if able. Some amazing snacks - made at Camphill Kimberton - will be served. If attending, please RSVP to shaylyn.decker@gmail.com. Volunteers should meet at Rose Hall at noon. Work will happen rain or shine.

Camphill Village Kimberton Hills is located at 1601 Pughtown Road, Kimberton, Pa. Follow signs for Rose Hall, located at the top of the hill on Camphill Drive.

Several Local Businesses Closing Up Shop

Over the next couple of months, three local businesses will be closing their doors.

On Saturday, February 16th, Polka Dots will be closing their store at 246 Bridge Street. The shop, a women's clothing boutique, opened nearly two and a half years ago but has recently found business slow.

---
Originally, (owner Susan) Randels said that the store was doing well, but that the momentum could not keep up.

"The things that sold in Paoli didn't sell in Phoenixville," she said, adding that some customers thought that the store was too expensive or the sizing did not go high enough (size 12 being the highest size sold). "We tried everything."

Randels also said that parking was an issue for many of her customers who could either not find spaces or did not feel safe parking behind the store.

Polka Dots remains open until the 16th, with hours on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. The phone number is 610-935-5914. Clothing and shoes are bei…

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'.

La Crêperie Café Bis Opens

Yesterday, Phoenixville's newest cafe opened. La Crêperie Café Bis, located at the corner of Bridge and Gay Streets at the base of the Gay St. Bridge, opened its doors at 11am. As you can probably guess by its name, La Crêperie features both sweet and savory crêpes which, owner Marietou Fanny says, are made with only fresh ingredients. Fanny also owns a restaurant in Center City in Philadelphia called La Crêperie Café, which has been open for nine years.

La Crêperie is open seven days a week. Hours are Monday-Friday from 11am-10pm, Saturday 11am-11pm and Sunday from 10am-7pm.

Best of luck to Marietou and her staff!
