Humane Society Phoenixville Hosting Free Vaccine & Microchip Clinic this Saturday

As part of The Humane Society Phoenixville’s ongoing commitment of serving the community, on Saturday, August 9, 2014 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., veterinary staff and volunteers from The Humane Society Phoenixville’s partner organization, Humane Pennsylvania, will be on hand to administer free vaccination and microchip services to area residents. Vaccinations for Rabies and Distemper-Parvo, along with Home Again microchips will be provided at no-cost for up to 75 dogs on a first come first served basis.

In tough economic times, many pet owners feel as though they have to choose between caring for their family or their pets’ needs. Humane Pennsylvania has been a leader in developing programs, such as PetNet and AniMeals, so that pet owners hopefully do not have to make that unfortunate choice. “Our goal has always been to make pet surrenders a last resort,” said Karel Minor, Humane Pennsylvania’s President/CEO. “Fortunately, we have made tremendous strides in this area, but more can always be done.” In an effort to get the word out and help as many canine owners as possible, The Humane Society Phoenixville has been promoting the event by meeting with various social service organizations and canvassing lower-income areas of the community.
  • What: Free Vaccine & Microchip Clinic
  • Where: Friendship Fire Company #2, 423 West High Street, Phoenixville, PA
  • When: Saturday, August 9, 2014 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
  • Details: Limited to 75 canines only and served on a first come first served basis

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery, was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery:
I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions. While I don’t have a retail locatio…
