This is another great tribute to those who fallen in defense of their country. Berwyn has had itsRead More own Gold Star Memorial at the Berwyn SEPTA station. The Christmas tree in the center of the south parking lot was installed and dedicated to the Gold Star Mothers by the Veterans Association of Easttown and Tredyffrin Townships about five years ago. See the stone at the base of the tree.

It was so touching and heart-warming to receive all of the donations from folks at HomeCooked onRead More Friday. Most folks echoed the sentiment "I didn't know the family but just wanted to help." If you didn't get to donate, HomeCooked can continue to take donations on Monday (in addition to the bank) 10-5:30pm. We are humbled by the generosity of local folks and businesses. Thanks to Patch.com, TE Cares and other folks who did a great job of spreading the word. --Claire Guarino, HomeCooked owner

Bob, Thanks for this story. We are indeed fortunate to have these professionals donate their time toRead More help the township. If anyone else has the itch to give back, we could use up to 3 additional members on the committee.

Thank you to our three FD members who completed this memorial climb. We should never forget theRead More tragic loss of lives suffered on 9/11/01.....or the 343 firefighters who lost their lives that day and the almost 2800 civilian lives lost they were trying to save. They are all heroes.

Proceeds from the tour will go toward rebuilding/restoring the historic Jones Barn which has beenRead More relocated to the DuPortail House property in Chesterbrook. The really cool thing about this tour is that you get to go through many private homes and properties that are still people's homes and not museums. TE is steeped in American history. I took this tour for the first time last year and wished I'd had have given myself even more time. You will see learn fascinating things about TE history and see inside buildings that may never be open to the public again. There is also a very special stop on this year's tour with a look inside one of the most significant places in both TE and American political, social and religious history. You might have driven by the building hundreds or thousands of times and wondered what it looks like inside. Now's your chance to find out. It's all described on the website I've linked to in the article.

Thanks Bob. The 8th Annual Historic House Tour features 6 historic homes, 2 restored barns andRead More the wonderful old Mt. Zion AME Church and Cemetery. Mt. Zion will have special reenactors on the battlefield along with an old fashioned bake sale with homemade goodies. The Host Sponsor, Willowbrook Farm, is one of the stops. Twice a Vassar Show House, the owner Meg Veno, has her scheduled her Fall Barn Sale around the House Tour. Meg is generously donating a portion of the sales to the Tredyffrin Historic Preservation Trust -- clearly supporting historic preservation in the community!
