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.

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:
