Our Phillies did it again; five straight Eastern Division Championships. they are almost a dynasty, aren’t they?We were at the game Friday night that they just couldn’t pull it out but it didn’t matter; we knew it was just a matter of time.let the playoffs begin.if there is ever a dedicated Rotarian, it’s certainly Lisa Dort, who was recently president of the Rotary Club of Concordville-Chadds Ford.Lisa and the current president, Sue Mardinly, plus other club members happily handed out free cotton candy donated by Jolly Jumpers, just to give people a chance to see what Rotarians are all about.Lisa said the purpose of the initiative was to encourage community participation and raise awareness of Rotary International, the Polio Plus campaign to eradicate polio as well as the local rotary’s projects.two local people won $50 gift cards donated by Big Fish Restaurant and WSFS, where Lisa is an assistant vice-president.E-mail CCFRotary@gmail. com for more information about the Rotary.With the fall weather a sure thing already, mark your calendars for Oct. 21, for a "Boo" night sponsored by the Concord Township Historical Society.It’s not a costume party nor is it a haunted house, but something that will be making you think Halloween.Watch for details.everyone likes pizza and it is a fact that Anthony’s Coal fire Pizza on Route 202 is one of the best places to eat it.The Bethel Township Park and Recreation Committee is sponsoring an all-day pizza fundraiser at Anthony’s from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. next Tuesday, Sept. 27.The committee will receive 20 percent of the proceeds if you use a coupon you can find on the township website at twp. bethel.pa.us.You have something better to do than cook that night, so order in for a change.when the Francis Harvey Green School was razed (and isn’t it a nice-looking park now?), the Bethel Township Preservation Society received permission from the school board to retrieve some of the bricks from the building.The Society is reclaiming some of the bricks and pieces of stone that graced the front of the school and will be selling a limited number.The bricks are being treated to last and will have a picture of the school and the dates it was in operation on one side and “Bethel Township Preservation Society,” on the opposite, with a photo of the Southery Log House.The items will soon be available but the number of each is limited, so plan to buy one as soon as they go on sale, which will be at the annual Founder’s Day celebration on Oct. 8.*** once again, Pennslvania State Police have issued a plea to area residents to lock their vehicles and remove all valuables because of numerous calls about thefts from unlocked vehicles.if thieves are going to steal your car or what’s in it, let’s make it hard for them.are there still people out there like this:? two elderly sisters donated $5 to a charity and, to their surprise, won tickets to a football game.Since they had never seen a live football game, they decided to go and soon found themselves high in a noisy stadium overlooking a large, grassy expanse.they watched the kickoff and the seemingly endless back-and-forth struggles that comprised the scoreless first half.they enjoyed the band music and cheerleader performance that followed.Then came the second half. when the teams lined up for the second-half kickoff, Madge nudged her sister, “I guess we can go home now, Mabel,” she said. “this is where we came in.”Living with all males for so many years, I have had no choice but to learn football and if I’m watching a game and don’t answer at 610-485-6428 leave a message or or email . I’ll be waiting.
