Since when is Freedom Foundation in Valley Forge Park? I though the Foundation was a privateRead More enterprise which owned its property, and the Park was Federal (formerly state) land. Did I miss something?
Bob Byrne (Editor) January 27, 2014 at 05:45 am
There are many,many private properties within Valley Forge National Historical Park. The FreedomsRead More Foundation AT Valley Forge is privately owned.
Bud Horenci January 27, 2014 at 01:17 pm
While the freedoms Foundation is is Valley Forge/Schuylkill Township.......it is NOT within theRead More Valley Forge Park boundaries.

what a downer.....next you'll tell me that Festivus is nothing more than a fabrication !
Lynette Gray November 13, 2013 at 03:33 pm
Because no one is contributing, they are now giving away prizes for donations - "RaindropRead More Therapy" to help you lose weight - that is new agey-paganish mish-mash if I ever heard. And it is given by someone who practices shamanistic traditions to promote co-creation in an Aqaurian age. Laugh all you want, but these are the people behind this event.

You know that, Joe! A screenwriter's fabrication, indeed. Sort of like Kwanzaa, which if you dropRead More the last 'a' you can spend in Angola, and as a holiday was thought up after an excellent night smoking something funny...at least that's one rumor! We really should be celebrating the birth of Jesus sometime around the end of March, but we would offend the Romans (their ancestors perhaps) who are hip to the Ides of March. We'd be ticking off the Jewish folks because it would cause conflicts with their holidays and what would we do with the Easter Bunny business? Think about the impact on Hallmark! I don't know much about Islamic holidays but in another year or two they will probably be forced on your politically correct school districta so we'll hear about that soon enough and you can be sure there will be conflicts with everyone's holidays when that hits the fan. The only change I'd like to see for the Firebird Festival is mandatory baths. Last year it was pretty ripe upwind from some of the participants. Was Phoenixville rationing water? Maybe they need that 'raindrop therapy'? I'll donate soap.

This is such a wonderful event. Great soup, and it helps to benefit families in our - some that youRead More probably know - and benefits a great organization (PACS) Keep up the great work!
Lynette Gray October 17, 2013 at 10:18 am
Sorry to see this event won't be held downtown this year, but I am happy for PACS that it has grown,Read More and I can't wait to add another beautidully crafted bowl to my collection.

Great event for a great cause. People still don't truly understand the hunger and poverty that stillRead More exists in Phoenixville.
Average Citizen September 24, 2013 at 03:19 pm
Ed, Jenny may be a little "stiff" but BD sounds like a straight up nutcase. Hey man, doRead More what makes you happy...you want to stand around and watch this thing burn, go ahead. You want to stay at home instead, cool. Live and let live. If if helps brings some money to the town, I'm fine with it even though I don't get it and won't be attending. As the other guy said, it is still a free country so do what you want but keep the religion and "pagan" nonsense out of the discussion. Peace.

So happy to see American flags flying in the borough. If I can figure how to attach a flagpole toRead More vinyl porch columns, I'd love to fly one at home. Wouldn't it be nice for everyone to do the same? We could start to look like a Mayberry town.....
PVilleRes September 18, 2012 at 12:07 am
Glad to see this happening! I do think however, the borough needs to expand its vision beyondRead More Bridge Street. I love Bridge Street, but I love the rest of the borough too. i think we should get more flags and place them in other places around the borough people see often, such as... High Street, Main Street, Starr Street, Nutt Road, Gay Street... Maybe even on the bridges coming into Borough, like the bridge from Mont Clare, or even on the Gay Street Bridge. I love the idea but my message to the council is... If you want Phoenixville to become a bigger deal, you need to expand your horizons and efforts past Bridge Street, though I do love where they've taken it.

Michele, you are a very special little girl to do this. I am sure you brightened up the day of theRead More families who received your books!
