There is so much to be thankful for this time of year!
November marks the two-year anniversary of the launch of West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle. We are incredibly thankful to be celebrating another year of connecting our community through the stories and events we feature each month. Thank you, our faithful readers, for your wonderful feedback and support!
Words cannot begin to express the immense appreciation I have for our advertising partners. West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle is delivered to you for free every month thanks to the support of our advertisers. I am very selective about which businesses I partner with so that our readers can be assured that the companies featured on our pages provide high-quality products and services. The best way to thank these businesses for supporting West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle is by using their goods and services. Let them know you heard about them here.
Finally, I want to thank my wildly talented editorial team. The quality of stories and photographs continues to exceed my expectations every month. It wouldn’t be possible to pull this together without my amazing editor, Abbey McMahon—soon to be Abbey Bradley—as she’ll be getting married while this issue prints!
The stories inside this issue of West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle express our gratitude for our community. The Union Centre Boulevard freeway exit changed the landscape of West Chester, and this month we celebrate 20 years since that historic interchange opened. Veteran’s Day is celebrated in November, and we’d like to express our gratitude to the men and women who have bravely served our country. Inside we share the story of Team RBW, an organization dedicated to enriching the lives of American veterans by connecting them to their community. We are grateful for Liberty Township Fire Chief Paul Stumpf as he retires after 45 years of service to our community, and we welcome successor, Chief Ethan Klussman. We also highlight ways that local students from MTCES are giving back in our community.
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, we reached out to experts at The Coach House and Interiors Plus to provide inspiration for food and table settings fit for a fantastic Thanksgiving feast.
These are just some of the great stories you’ll find inside this Thankful issue of West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle. Thank you for reading.
