The snow may still be coming, but West Chester Park and Rec is planning again. See which popular borough events are coming back. I finally figured out where at least some of the Stream Protection money is going, a local kid gets called up to the majors and oh yea, West Chester has a new mayor. Grab yourself something hot and let’s do this.
Once upon a time for Valentine’s Day, I did a post on Instagram accounts I love. In full support of virtual escapism, I thought I’d revisit the topic with some West Chester newcomers (or newly found) who are doing their best to help us live vicariously. It’s not exactly easy to keep content fresh during a pandemic but these pages keep chug, chugging along.
The year may have just started, but we already have our first look at the future. Plus, police investigate a scary luring incident at Hoopes park, construction begins at the Melton Center and how much was collected in trash fines last year? More than I would have guessed.

I don’t know about you, but I am ready to leave 2020 behind. However, before we do I thought we should take a minute to remember the people, places and things we lost this year. While some were fleeting, many were West Chester fixtures, leaving their indelible mark on the Borough.

Is it too soon to get excited for summer? Changes to the West Chester Summer camp program take a positive turn, the Borough has free tulip bulbs and trouble at West Chester University.

New, frankly startling, details on the financial implications to changing school start times, mouse droppings found in a school cafeteria, and West Chester’s plans to address climate change. Plus, the latest on 44 West and the holiday window decorating contest is back! It’s December. Grab some eggnog and let’s get started.
For several years, we hit up a tree stand just north on 202. Then last year we tried the Christmas Tree Train. Which was great, but is already sold out. So where to now? Conveniently this very same question was posed on social. Whether you’re in need of an actual tree or just the motivation to get going, these helpful responses will get you in the holiday spirit!
