Phoenixville Hurricane Sandy Relief Effort

Reader Maureen posted this on our Facebook page:

New Jersey residents are in desperate need following the devastation of many shore communities and are in need our immediate help.

The process of returning life to normal may take a very long time but together we can help our neighbors by donating items, distributing flyers about this effort, volunteering at the collection center when it opens, and help to make a positive impact on many lives. We have received a list of needed items. Please see below.

Wednesday, November 07, 2012, 7 p.m. we will meet at the Episcopal House, 601 Center Street, Phoenixville, to collect any immediate donations and to organize volunteers to drop flyers, staff a collection center, and deliver supplies to New Jersey. Please make plans to attend!

Manny DeMutis has graciously offered a collection site for donations next door to Generations which is across from Phoenixville Federal Bank and Trust at 115 Main Street, Phoenixville. The center will be open later this week. Look for signs for hours of operation.

A bank account, "Phoenixville Hurricane Sandy Relief Effort", has been opened at Phoenixville Federal Bank and Trust.

Thank you!

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
