Camphill Challenge Returns October 20th

The 7th Annual Camphill Challenge will be held on Sunday, October 20th.

From their website:
It is sure to be another great day of cycling on October 20 as our 7th annual Camphill Challenge bike ride rolls off! We are pleased to announce that we are adding a 100 mile route this year.

As always, routes will feature the famed fall foliage of Chester County, as well as the area's hilly terrain, horse farms, historic homes, covered bridges, and tours of the Camphill Communities in Chester County. 50, 25, 10, and 2 mile routes will be offered in addition to our new 100 mile route.

Kimberton Waldorf School (410 West Seven Stars Road, Phoenixville, PA 19460) will be our gracious hosts again this year and we expect quite a crowd of cyclists.

Proceeds of the Camphill Challenge benefit Camphill Special School, Camphill Soltane, and Camphill Village Kimberton Hills: life sharing communities for children, youth, and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

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
