I hope you were here over the 4th of July weekend. I had the opportunity to walk around town on Friday and really enjoyed the variety of music playing. On Saturday evening George and I went, along with some good friends of ours, to the Concert Under the Stars event at Tinicum Park. The fireworks were spectacular – probably the best I have ever seen!
Back to business… Next month (yippee!) there should be some changes on the website! Keep you fingers crossed. I am working diligently to get the re-design ready to go. I am also going to introduce you to some new writers (yes, I had some responses to my “Call to Arms” in last month’s newsletter asking for HELP) and at least one new (yummy) column, so make sure you come back next month to see what I am talking about!
I am also planning to introduce a new general interest website that
I will tell you a bit about. Stay tuned!
