Welcome to this week's edition of the Chester County Press.  In this issue, we cover the Unionville-Chadds Ford School District, London Grove Township, the Avon Grove School Board, and East Marlborough Township ... We profile two people who help others find ways to remain in their own home through aging-in-place programs ... We introduce the new varsity basketball coach at Kennett High School, and we take a tour of a few holiday events ... All of this and Uncle Irvin, too, in the Dec. 7 edition of the Chester County Press.
