for what it's worth (as someone who has rented reeves park quite a bit), the groups have to pay to rent it (which covers the costs) and some costs have an resident and non resident fee schedule.

From PAN's website - "Peace Advocacy Network promotes a peaceful existence through veganism, social justice, and respect for the Earth's inhabitants and resources."

We all should be against bullying. Families - before participating, make sure you understand and agree with the agenda of this group. http://www.peaceadvocacynetwork.org/litresources/PAN_EqualityMatters.pdf

Lynette Gray - maybe be the most negative person I have come across on this site. Complaining about a peace group who promotes anti-bullying? Seriously? Lynette, you really need to seek out a good therapist.

Lynette, I am the organizer of the event and a Phoenixville resident as are other PAN board members and volunteers working this event. Everyone at PAN is a volunteer. We paid the Borough for the use of the space so that we could put on a free event for the community we are a part of for an important cause. Additionally, PAN has a branch in Phoenixville (as a volunteer-run group with limited resources, we don't have a physical location) and has had other free events in Phoenixville. In short, the borough in NOT giving away anything to PAN, and PAN IS a local group.
