In this week's Chester County Press, we cover all the action at Oxford High School's Homecoming, we introduce you to the six candidates running for Kennett Square Borough Council, we meet local men who helped protect Pope Francis during his Philadelphia visit, we share the spirit of the 91st Annual Unionville Fair, we salute the program coordinator of the Oxford Senior Center as she steps down after 26 years, we preview a landmark exhibition of works by N.C. Wyeth in West Chester ... all this, and Uncle Irvin, too, in this week's Chester County Press.
