Eagleville runners getting ready to hit the pavement

November 18, 2017 by  

Eagleville runners of all ability levels are welcome to lace up their sneakers and head to a special event that will soon be taking place in the local area.

The Flight of the Phoenix Firebird 5k will be celebrating its inaugural year. It will include both a 5k run that will be timed and a shorter route that can be run or walked, while those who need an assistive mobility device will be able to roll. The course will be well marked, and there will be plenty of cheering spectators along the way to encourage the “weekend warriors” to do their best.

Throughout the day, those who participate in one of the runs, as well as members of the public, will be invited to browse through the displays that will be set up by various vendors, and there will also be entertainment on site. At the end of the day, there will be a parade that will wind up at Friendship Field, where the Phoenix Firebird will light up the night time sky. Branded T-shirts and other customized promotional products for a new event like this can be supplied by an area printer.

All of this activity will be taking place on December 9, starting at 3:00 pm. It will be staged at 249 Bridge Street in Phoenixville, and additional details can be found on the Runsignup website.

Eagleville area workshop to tech the joys of container gardening

April 24, 2017 by  

Whether they have a huge yard or a small balcony or doorstep, almost anyone can have a garden of their own, and a workshop has been planned for the Eagleville area that will teach those who come out how they can grow a container garden of their very own

Cassandra Hogue, who is a Chester County Master Gardener, will facilitate the session, and will give tips and other advice. She will discuss how to choose the appropriate receptacle for planting, as well as which plants perform best in a small space, how to design the planting for flower, vegetable or fruit production, how to overwinter the container, and much more. They will each have a chance to make their own spring blooming small garden to take home with them.

Every person who participates is asked to bring along some medium sized pots with good drainage for planting, as well as gardening gloves. The soil and plants will be provided. A printer can craft simple gardening guides using booklet printing techniques, and these can be distributed to each person who attends an event such as this.

The container planting workshop will be held on May 4 in the Phoenixville Public Library. The registration fee has been set at $15, and additional information and an opportunity to register to participate have been made available on the event’s Patch listing.

Eagleville area nursery school seeking donations

March 27, 2017 by  

A local nursery school is asking for donations of gently used items for its Clothing and Shoe Drive fundraising efforts, and it is hoping that Eagleville residents will be generous in their contributions.

Audubon’s St. Andrew’s Nursery School will be accepting a wide range of items for both adults and children. Shoes, boots and other clothing, sheets, pillowcases, comforters, bedding, hats, and scarves are among the items that will be gratefully accepted. The drive will give people an opportunity to give new life to their unwanted items, and will also keep them out of area landfills.

Those who would like to make a contribution are asked to pack their donations into 13 to 30 gallon sized plastic garbage bags, which should be tied shut. They can be dropped off at the nursery school, and will be sorted by staff and volunteers. A printing company can be called upon to create materials that can help to get the word out to the community about a fundraising event such as this.

Anyone with items to contribute to the St. Andrew’s Nursery School fundraiser is asked to bring them to the school on April 1 between 9:00 am and 2:00 pm. The facility is located at 2725 Egypt Road in Audubon. Additional details have been added to the Patch event listings for the area.

Eagleville area festival to celebrate maple sap and syrup

February 24, 2017 by  

Sapsuckers are a small species of woodpecker that enjoys maple sap just as much as people do, and an upcoming Eagleville area event has been named in their honor.

The Annual Sapsucker Festival will celebrate maple syrup production from tree to table. Those who participate will be able to discover the history of maple syrup and sugar making, all the way from the techniques used by First Nations people to those used during colonial and then modern times. There will also be tree tapping demonstrations where people can learn how the spigots are placed on the trees, a pancake breakfast, presentations with a live owl, raffles, and more. Guests can even buy freshly made syrup and other maple products. Reusable banners and other decorations with a maple and woodpecker theme can be crafted for an event like this by a printing company.

A special area will be set up for the kids where they can find out about bird conservation while they make crafts, and there will also be free guided tours offered of the sugar bush. Proceeds from the day will be used to support the community environmental information programming provided by the John James Audubon Center.

All of this will be taking place on March 4th at the John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove in Audubon. More information can be found by visiting the Town Planner website.
