We are about to embark on a new pool adventure. After years as members of the YMCA outdoor pool, we have decided to break off and try something new, or rather, something old. Goodbye waterpark. It’s back to basics. A pool, some grills, and a basketball hoop, but I am hoping the opportunity to run around with friends (and the peace that comes from fully-entertained kids) will more than make up for it. Need a place to dip your toes this summer? Here are your options.
West Chester's new Restaurant Week is almost here. How it works and who's participating. Plus, a West Chester student sends out a survey that enrages the internet - fortunately most of West Chester manages to keep calm and carry on, the consequences of West Chester's vaccine mandate, and hey sir, why are you picking on the West Chester Railroad? It's been an interesting week. Who's ready? Let's catch up.
A decision is eminent on the future of the Gay Street closure. Added challenges this year, including planned closures on Market Street, have Borough Council members being asked - how badly do you want it? Plus, two (count 'em two) new music festivals planned for the spring, and I have a quiz for you - what was the Borough's most searched term? Think you know it? You might be right. Who's ready? Let's catch up.
Last week the West Chester Area School District shared a concerning report on students' social emotional health that largely got overlooked as parents continued to bicker about masks. We revisit. Also, a local legend announces he is hanging it up after 53 years on the field and the winner of the Borough's Professional Gingerbread Competition is announced. Who's ready? Let's catch up.
Happy Friday! Are we finally seeing a light at the end of the tunnel of January? Downtown West Chester is hoping you'll be ready to celebrate next month at brand new West Chester Restaurant Week. Plus, is West Chester's emergency care system in crisis mode? Two popular West Chester restaurants receive good news while two others are forced to close (for now.) It's always interesting. Who's ready? Let's catch up.
This week we finally get some movement on a couple of long delayed projects - fixing the lights and fixing the traffic flow. Plus, vague threats targeting two West Chester schools lead some parents to pull students in a panic and the pizza place that has everyone talking. Who's ready? Let's catch up.
