Ages and stages. 1

Next month I reach a new milestone—I turn 40. As I prepare to start a new decade, I’ve started thinking of the various ages and stages in our lives. This month West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle travels through the years and dives into stories about different generations.

For many, August is about back-to-school. For families with kids still in the nest, we offer a feature on Huntington Learning Center, a locally owned learning center that can help youth of any age with study skills, tutoring and college entrance testing. Our Giving Back story this month explores the Boys & Girls Club, which is about to undergo a major expansion in our area.

Our Local Limelight story shines the spotlight on sisters who graduated from Lakota and are moving on to make an impact in the anti-bullying movement while also balancing a competitive career as models.

If you’ve ever wondered how to navigate intergenerational differences at the office, you’ll enjoy our story about generation gaps.

For the sandwich generation, we have a story that highlights a growing movement in senior care that provides a more home-like setting in which to tend to your aging loved ones.

In our Around Town section you are invited to celebrate with a West Chester resident who recently crossed a major milestone when she turned 100.

No matter which generation you represent, this August issue of West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle has something for you. Please join us as we take a stroll through the years.
