In this week's edition of the Chester County Press, we meet a 90-year-old resident who took part in the Washington, D.C. Women's March last weekend ... We meet a rejuvenated Kennett Library board of directors who are restoring a community connection with the 120-year-old library ... We also report on the latest news from the Oxford School Board, the Unionville-Chadds Ford School Board, and New Garden Township ... From high-school sports to the Kennett Old Timers Baseball dinner and Uncle Irvin, too, it's all here in this week's Chester County Press.
