Landenberg Today Spring/Summer 2016 issue
By Richard Gaw
Franklin Township was named after Benjamin Franklin, one of the founding fathers of the United States, but do you know why? In this issue, we explore the answer, thanks to the research and a presentation by Paul Lagassé and Nan Latimer, members of the Franklin Township Historical Commission, who helped lead an effort to learn Benjamin Franklin’s real relationship to the Chester County township that shares his name. Also in this issue, we profile Landenberg artist Mindy Hadley Dole and explore how she is inspired by the surroundings in Landenberg. We talk to Abigail Sites about how a local dance school has grown to include approximately 150 dancers. We also explore how April Schmitt's efforts to clean up the White Clay Creek Preserve started a community tradition. And there's lots more. Welcome to our Spring/Summer 2016 issue!
