In this week's Chester County Press, we take you to the Housing Authority of Chester County, to the Unionville-Chadds Ford School Board, and to the opening of a new headquarters for a local conservation group … We introduce you to the work of some scouts in West Grove, who volunteered for others less fortunate; to a future aviators camp in New Garden; and to the life lessons being learned at a local camp organized by the Pennsylvania State Police … All of this and Uncle Irvin, too, in this week's Chester County Press.
