Phoenixville Zombie Run and Fun Day Being Held November 2nd

The Phoenixville Zombie Run will be held on Saturday, November 2nd 2013, at Reeves Park in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania. Runner check-in begins at 8:00 AM, and the first stage of the run begins promptly at 9:00am.

There are 3 stages of the run - a 5K Traditional Run, a 1K Walk & Fun Run, and a 5K “Survivor Run”...complete with a horde of Zombies who will be trying to catch the "survivors"!

A portion of the money raised through the Phoenixville Zombie Run will be donated directly to PACS (Phoenixville Area Community Services) to help support their mission of empowering people in the Phoenixville area to achieve self-sufficiency.

While the run is taking place outside of Reeves Park...

The Phoenixville Zombie Fun Day will be held on Saturday, November 2nd, from 9:00am – 12:00pm, within Reeves Park. It offers games and activities for family members of all ages, including: a 24' rock climbing wall, inflatable moon bouncers, "make your own" kids crafts, learning about wilderness survival skills, first aid and emergency preparedness, spin art, candy making, a Zombie themed costume contest, comics, T-shirts, music, food vendors...and more! The Fun Day portion of this event is FREE, and there is no need to pre-register to attend the Fun Day within Reeves Park.

In addition to the money raised in support of PACS, the Phoenixville Zombie Run and Fun Day will also be holding a canned food drive on the day of the event, with the support of local Cub Scout Packs and Boy Scout Troops, to collect canned food and goods for the local Scouting for Food drive.

All who attend the run or the fun day are asked to please bring a minimum of one non-perishable food item to contribute to the food drive.

The holidays are a time of great need for food and additional support for organizations like PACS, and the Phoenixville Zombie Run & Fun Day is proud to support local efforts to strengthen the community of Phoenixville.

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
