Dedicated to the men we love.

Ladies, last month was your time to shine. This month it’s all about the guys.

This issue of West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle is packed full of stories about amazing men who are helping to shape our community in a variety of ways.

Inside you’ll learn the stories of local entrepreneurs who create the ice cream we love, fix our cars with a caring touch and those who went from stay-at-home dads to brewers. We hope you’ll be inspired as you get to know a local philanthropist who’s a dedicated family man, a recent Lakota West graduate who is a CEO, and a young man who uses his craftsmanship to communicate what he can’t express through words.

We also celebrate a milestone for West Chester, the fiftieth anniversary of the West Chester Police Department. These are just a few of the great stories you’ll find inside this Guys’ edition of West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle.

As I write this, I am visiting with a very special man for what may be the last time. I am blessed to have both a kind and loving father and an encouraging and caring stepfather. My stepfather has been an integral part of my life since my teenage years. He’s losing his battle with cancer and may not be here to celebrate another Father’s Day. Growing up, he always challenged me to be strong in my convictions, and his influence is certainly part of what gave me the confidence to start this magazine. So, I’d like to dedicate this issue of West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle to my stepfather, Dave Sheets.

Let’s raise a glass to toast the men in our lives who we love, both those here with us and those who have passed before us. Cheers to you guys and Happy Father’s Day!
