Chester County Press July 26 edition

07/26/2017 07:58AM ● By J. Chambless
In the July 26 edition of the Chester County Press, we report on a collaborative effort by three municipalities to apply for a grant which, if awarded, will go into the construction of pedestrian and bike trails to connect New Garden Township, Kennett Township and Kennett Borough ... We visit the Miss Oxford Diner, a trusty mainstay for comfort food and community ... We also profile the Brandywiners upcoming production of "Beauty and the Beast," and give a sneak peek into a few of the many local National Night Out celebrations scheduled for Aug. 1 ... From local news to upcoming concerts to Uncle Irvin, it's all here in this week's Chester County Press.
