Chester County Press Oct. 18 edition

10/18/2017 08:11AM ● By J. Chambless
In this edition of the Chester County Press, we report on the candidates who are seeking a spot on the Franklin Township Board of Supervisors, in Oxford Borough, and to become the next mayor of Oxford. We present a sneak preview of the upcoming KSQ Mushroom Cap 13.1 half marathon on Nov. 4, and we discuss the new referendum coming out of New Garden Township that could make yearly contributions to the Kennett Library ... From a local artist who walked the Appalachian Trail to high school football and Uncle Irvin, it's all here in this week's Chester County Press.
