Weavers Way buys Caruso’s

Caruso’s Market will soon have a new owner.

The Weavers Way Co-op, a Mt. Airy-based, member-owned grocery store, last week signed an agreement to purchase the building at 8418-22 Germantown Ave. 

The co-op, a not-for-profit entity, will make settlement on the property next month, according to spokesman Jon McGoran.

The store could open as early as this summer, he said, but that depends on how quickly the place can be renovated.

“We are working on cost estimates and design decisions,” he said, adding that “we anticipate a new façade, some structural improvements, some new equipment, new layout and décor.”

PREVIEW PERFORMANCE

Recently the Mendelssohn Club of Philadelphia held its third annual Mendelssohn Medley at the Wyndmoor home of  Peggy and Rich Greenawalt. Guests and patrons heard Alan Harler, music director, lead 16 members of the 150 voice chorus in a selection from the Verdi Requiem, which they will perform at the Kimmel Center on March 29 along with the world premiere of a choral-orchestral work by renowned Philadelphia composer Jennifer Higdon.
This party celebrated Harler’s 20th year as Music Director, and the 135th Anniversary of the Mendelssohn Club, the oldest continually performing mixed-voice chorus in the country. Over 70 guests attended, raising $9,000 towards the cost of the upcoming concert.

Mount hoopsters still climbing; now at 18-0

A 20-win season is an admirable achievement for any basketball club, but very few teams hit that mark while still sporting a zero in the loss column. In front of a large home crowd last Saturday afternoon, Mount St. Joseph Academy drew closer to that goal, putting away Country Day School of the Sacred Heart, 64-25, to reach a record of 18-0.

Sacred Heart remained winless in the Athletic Association of Catholic Academies and fell to an overall mark of 3-14, while the Magic pushed their league win total into double figures, 10-0.
