Chester County Press July 8 edition

07/07/2015 04:07PM ● By J. Chambless
In this week's edition of the Chester County Press, we attend the memorial service for philanthropist and community leader John H. Ware IV, and look back at the life of longtime Oxford leader Carl R. Fretz ... We take you to the latest in the continuing story of the Whitewing Farm in East Marlborough Township, as well as to London Grove Township, where the residents of Lamborn Hunt continue to press the development's builder for answers about construction delays ... We show you the new Longwood Gardens beer garden, take you to a Fourth of July event and a history walk through Longwood Cemetery. All of this and Uncle Irvin, too, in this week's edition of the Chester County Press.
