Chester County Press July 15 edition

07/14/2015 11:45AM ● By J. Chambless
In the July 15 edition of the Chester County Press, we bring you an update on the Kennett area economic development study, take you to the links of the Wyncote golf course, and introduce you to the new Kennett Township police chief. We also tell you the story of a family made homeless by damage to their home, and their struggle to return their lives to normalcy. From summer art camps for children to a new and spectacular light show at Longwood Gardens -- and Uncle Irvin, too -- the Chester County Press brings you all the local news.
