Chester County Press July 20 edition

07/20/2016 08:23AM ● By J. Chambless
In this week's edition of the Chester County Press, we go to New Garden Township, where the board approved an agreement that will merge two area police forces into the Southern Chester County Regional Police Department ... We visit Oxford Borough, where a new borough manager has been named ... We say 'Goodbye' to longtime Oxford leader Jerome Rodio, and we report on the work that the Good Neighbors group is doing for others.  From a profile of the upcoming Brandywiners show to a story about two future aviators, and Uncle Irvin, too, it's all here in this week's Chester County Press.
