Penn Township Supervisor Chairman and community leader Curtis Mason has been convalescing from a health procedure for the past several months.

Curtis is “Mr. Penn Township” and is responsible for Penn Township being the “capital” of southern Chester County. Penn's commercial development has ameliorated property taxes levied by the Avon Grove School Board, as well as Chester County and Penn Township itself, and had provided good jobs. And more is on the horizon, with the University of Pennsylvania/Chester County Hospital facility to be built just north of the Route 1 Bypass.

Penn Township is the home of this newspaper, and we moved here to be in the epicenter of southern Chester County.

Let's hope Curtis gets well and gives Penn a “few more years” of leadership.

Speaking of Penn Township, longtime supervisor Bill Finnen received a commendation from the State Senate for his 53 years of service to the township. They don't make a whole lot of Bill Finnens! Congratulations!
