Renowned Author and Adolescent Medicine Specialist Dr. Ken Ginsburg to Speak at Montgomery School

On Tuesday, October 2, Montgomery School is hosting Dr. Ken Ginsburg, a pediatrician specializing in Adolescent Medicine at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, to give an overview of the Seven C’s Model of Resilience. This event is free and open to the public.

Dr. Ginsburg will share communication strategies that position parents to be unwavering positive forces in their children’s lives. Parents will leave the session better prepared to:
  • Build confidence in their children
  • Notice and reinforce their children’s competence
  • Foster the vital connection between parents and children
  • Develop character and a sense of contribution in their children
  • Develop those critical coping strategies that will help their children thrive (and avoid risky behaviors!) even through difficult times
  • Help their children and teens gain control by learning that the privileges they earn are linked to the responsibility they demonstrate.

In addition to his position at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Kenneth Ginsburg, M.D. is also an Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. He serves as Director of Health Services at Covenant House Pennsylvania, an agency that serves Philadelphia’s homeless and marginalized youth. Dr. Ginsburg lectures widely to national and international parent and professional audiences. His most recent books are Building Resilience in Children and Teens: Giving Kids Roots and Wings and Letting Go with Love and Confidence: Raising Responsible, Self-Sufficient Teens.

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'.

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:
