Chester County Press April 13 edition

04/13/2016 09:09AM ● By J. Chambless
In the April 13 edition of the Chester County Press, we celebrate the 20th anniversary of Camp  Dreamcatcher ... We give a nod to The Sawmill Grill in Oxford for being given the town's  'Business of the Year' award ... We cover the recent closing of a popular dog park in London Grove Township, and we report on the disturbing story of six deer electrocuted in the White Clay Creek, apparently by downed power lines in Franklin Township ... From a busy social calendar to high school sports to Uncle Irvin, it's all here in this edition of the Chester County Press.
