Chester County Press June 15 edition

06/14/2016 01:23PM ● By J. Chambless
In this edition of the Chester County Press, we celebrate the gradations of the Class of 2016 at Avon Grove and Unionville high schools ... We report on the new teachers' contract for the Kennett Consolidated School District ... We report on new initiatives at a local school, and we take you to Avondale,  where a couple is embroiled in a controversy involving the construction of a protective fence ... There's all that and Uncle Irvin, too, in this week's Chester County Press.
