Our writers and photographers once again have found the Landenberg area to be rich with interesting—and sometimes inspirational—stories. We were there on Aug. 6 when a Landenberg Day celebration took place for the first time in years. More than 1,000 people turned out for the event at Borderland Vineyard. We'll also introduce you to Melissa Pelczar, a photographer who was born and raised in Landenberg. We talk to Ben and Sarah Daily-Cody about their efforts to launch the 1723 Vineyard, which joins the ranks of Chester County's burgeoning winery scene. We share the inspirational story of Don Mann, who is utilizing music to overcome the effects of a stroke that he suffered last year. This issue also includes a story about how New Garden Township's Open Space Review Board is helping Landenberg retain its pastoral identity, one acre at a time. The subject of the Q & A is Kalia Reynolds, Ed.D., the director of elementary teaching and learning at the Avon Grove School District. We also profile Sierra RyanWallick, a local teen who is dedicated to making the world a better place. We also introduce local resident Bill Fili, whose exhibit at the New Garden Flying Field in Toughkenamon documents his heroic experiences as a flight engineer during World War II. We hope that you enjoy reading the stories in this issue as much as we enjoyed preparing them!
