West Chester & Chadds Ford Life Fall/Winter 2017

10/25/2017 11:37AM ● Published by J. Chambless

Stacey Cutler is the kind of person that West Chester & Chadds Ford Life likes to profile because she's one of those people who is making a difference in the lives of others. When Cutler opened Fit Body Boot Camp, her goal was to not just transform bodies, but to transform lives by getting people to believe in themselves. We also profile musician Jennifer Nicole Campbell, 26, who performs, teaches, and keeps the classical tradition alive. We also write about H.G. Haskell, who planted his first crops on a six-acre pasture in 1986. We also explore how Gelato, made the right way, draws a crowd to West Chester by reporting about the Gemelli  Artisanal Gelato & Dessert Cafe in the borough. Earlier this year, the Chadds Ford Historical Society launched the Escape Brandywine escape room, just one of the innovative ways that the organization tries to engage and educate visitors. We caught up with Allison Schell, the program and development manager of the Society. We also write about how the Devereux CIDDS Learning Center’s small zoo is one part nature center and one part nurture center. And writer Natalie Smith explores how one area group of paranormal investigators tries to validate claims of spirits and apparitions. As always, we hope you enjoy this issue of West Chester & Chadds Ford Life!
