Letter from the Chairman Building on our reputation Dear members and business associates, With three-quarters of the year behind us, as I meet with other business professionals in the region, I am continually impressed at the reputation of our organization. We are known as people who welcome guests, make worthwhile introductions, and help create a positive impact on the business community in our service area. Our business community consists of enterprises, large and midsize companies, small businesses, organizations, and entrepreneurs, all representing a variety of industries. Along with a host of nonprofits, we help make Chester County a better place to live, work, and play.

Erik Gudmundson

As we continue in 2019, our objectives build on successes of previous years. We: 1. Raise awareness and enhance the value of the chamber. Work with our committees to involve more members in better defining what it means to be a satisfied member. This results in sustained and increased attendance and participation in Chamber programs and events. 2. Improve membership retention and growth. Empower all members to better understand the contributions and capabilities of the Chamber, so that they are proud to promote their Chamber membership status. 3. Increase educational opportunities for members. Offer relevant programming to help members better run their business, and help members achieve success. 4. Form new strategic partnerships and enhance existing relationships with other organizations. We are focused on the Southern part of Chester County, but we live and work in a larger ecosystem. Assist, and be assisted, by other organizations in the region when our goals align. Leverage the collective strength of multiple organizations in the area and embrace our service overlap to work more efficiently for our members. The two primary functions of any Chamber of Commerce are: 1. Advocate and act as a spokesperson for our membership, our business community, and our professional community, and help turn those thoughts and words into action. 2. Implement specific services and projects that benefit our members as a whole. The Southern Chester County Chamber is completing these functions today, and by continuing to operate with our 2019 objectives in mind, we are driven to deliver better value to the membership as a whole and improved service to our community. The Chamber exists for YOU – our members. We are a member-centric organization. The staff and board cannot accomplish all of the objectives on our own, so to continue with our member-centric philosophy, it’s imperative that members are involved. I encourage all members to serve on a committee – give something back to the Chamber and build long-lasting relationships. Committee listings and descriptions are available on the Chamber’s website. Thank you to our members for giving us the reason and inspiration to continue building on the successes of the Chamber. Thank you to our staff for their hard work and dedication to support us members. Thank you to our Board of Directors for helping to keep our large organization working consistently to improve the business climate of our service area. Cheers to another successful year!

Chamber golf tournament provides scholarships and business camp for local students By Chris Barber Correspondent

T

hree local high-school graduates got a leg up on paying college expenses thanks to the Southern Chester County Chamber of Commerce golf tournament. The 24th annual event was held at Hartefeld National Golf Course on Aug. 5, and continues to be the largest fundraiser the chamber holds each year. The recipients of $1,000 scholarships were one graduate from Avon Grove, Kennett and Unionville high schools, the three school districts served by the chamber. Oxford High School, the fourth in the local chamber’s area, is served by the Oxford Area Chamber of Commerce. The three students, two of whom greeted their hosts at the banquet following the tournament, were Richard Childs of Unionville, Jorge Tapia Becerril from Kennett and Zachary Bruecks from Avon Grove. Childs, who came to the banquet with his mother, Heather, and his father, Scott, is planning to attend Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia. He said he

found out he earned the award earlier when he was notified by school officials. “I was told I was recommended by the administration of the school. It was quite an honor. It was a big surprise,” he said. Childs said while at Unionville he was involved in service projects and started a lot of clubs. In his future he hopes to be involved in film, perhaps directing and producing. Bercerril, who attended the banquet with his mother, Susanna, his grandmother and his young sisters, said he was informed of his scholarship at Kennett’s senior awards assembly. He has attended Kennett schools throughout his academic career. This fall, he will attend Indiana University of Pennsylvania and major in political science. After that, he hopes to go to law school, with the aim of working for the U.S. Department of Justice. “I want to help anyone who needs help,” he said. Bruecks, from Avon Grove, was unable to attend the dinner and could not be reached for comment. In addition to the three $1,000 scholarship winners, the chamber financed $625-each camp tuitions for three Continued on Page 14

rising seniors at the respective schools. They are Matthew Cordell from Avon Grove, Trevor Bowdoin from Kennett and Collin Ferrer from Unionville. The grants enabled them to attend the weeklong Pennsylvania Free Enterprise Week in Erie. Pennsylvania Free Enterprise Week is a summer program that offers incoming high-school juniors and seniors a challenging opportunity to see what it is like to run their own business. Participants make up imaginary management teams where they learn first-hand about the free enterprise system. Their task is to turn their failing companies into a financial successes. They develop their own marketing strategies, design a website and make all the decisions that are demanded of real-life company executives. On hand at the banquet to report on his experience was Matthew Cordell from Avon Grove. He attended the banquet with his mother, Denise. He said his experience at camp was “awesome.” As a result of attending, he said, “I know I want to go to college for business.” Cordell plays three sports at Avon Grove: soccer, ice hockey and tennis. Bowdoin was unable to attend the banquet, but in a letter to Chamber President and CEO Cheryl Kuhn, he thanked her. “I was a part of the finance team in my

group. I learned how to do stocks and what stocks are essentially. The speakers taught me many things,” he wrote. Like Bowdoin, Ferrer was unable to attend the banquet, but he also wrote a letter of thanks to Kuhn. “This camp was truly a test for me to see if I really wanted to go into business. It was a success,” he wrote. The golf tournament was an all-day affair, attracting 86 who registered and 84 who played the course. It began with a brunch at 11 a.m., continued with the golf tournament in the afternoon and concluded with the 6 p.m. buffet banquet and awards ceremony. There were also numerous sponsors for various aspects of the golf event. The major sponsors were Longwood Gardens, Exelon, and the Riley Riper Hollin & Colagreco law firm. Longwood Gardens Director of Communications, Trish Evans, shared in her remarks at the banquet that Pierre DuPont, who founded the gardens, was also extremely interested in education, having provided funds for the building of both the Kennett and Unionville schools. She said Longwood also has a camp program called Seed Your Future for kids in grades seven to 10. Additionally, Hartefeld Membership Director Christopher Richardson welcomed guests and highlighted the club’s guest privileges at more than 200 other clubs nationwide. Continued on Page 16

The winners of the various competitions in the golf tournament were awarded checks for their accomplishments that day. They included the following: Closest to the pin on holes 9, 11 and 14 respectively: Vic Dupuis, Adam Woodworth and Nate Cline. Longest drive women: Betsy Niedziejko. Longest drive men: Conner Sharp. Putting contest: Adam Woodworth. Mixed foursome low score (54) Mark Trani, Chase Gunther, Jen Meehan and Mike Grande. In addition to the annual golf tournament to fund scholarships, the Southern Chester County Chamber sponsors a fall luncheon which features a speaker (often from government) that will help members learn about various aspects of the current business climate. They also hold the President’s Gala, started in 1968, during which they name the outstanding citizen, as well as an inspirational breakfast. Kuhn said the three essential missions and benefits of membership in the chamber are the chance for networking, gaining business opportunities and training, and advocacy in the community. Boosting local business means having a

far-reaching effect on regional prosperity, she said. While the chamber maintains a non-political stance on advocating for businesses, it addresses such issues as the current labor crises in the mushroom industry. Kuhn said she has arranged for legislators from the region to tour mushroom operations to educate them on the needs of farmers in their constituency. She also founded the Mushroom Labor Crisis Taskforce that showcases work opportunities for individuals who are seeking entry-level jobs. This includes prison and juvenile detention facilities. With respect to the golf tournament, Kuhn said the chamber has four golf club members: Hartefeld in New Garden, Wyncote in Lower Oxford, Radley Run in Birmingham and Kennett Country Club in East Marlborough. She is interested in rotating the clubs for the fundraiser yearly. This particular fundraiser had sponsors, and the members also paid a fee to play. She said the income received covered the scholarships, and any extra will go into the chamber’s operating budget to provide other services – of which there are many. Kuhn said that accommodating partnerships between municipalities, business opportunities and training are some of her priorities.

hen the occasion calls for something very special, a one-of-a-kind creation from Vanessa Ross Cakes can be just the right thing to complete your event. For a birthday, wedding, special occasion or party, big or small, having a beautiful cake is important to complete the event. With Vanessa Ross Cakes, you can have a cake Vanessa Ross: ‘Anybody can make shock and the wow factor.’ that fits your dreams. “Anybody can make a cake. I want it to be about the shock and the wow factor. They’re going to look good, and taste better,” Ross said. She has been creating cakes for about 17 years. While an executive secretary, and then a manager of disabled shooting services for the National Rifle Association, she baked cakes as a hobby. She was self-taught, starting with a small cake decorating kit. “From there, I bought books on how to decorate and then these cake decorating challenge shows started coming on the Food Network,” Ross said. “I used to sit in front of the TV with a note pad and pen like I was studying for a final. To me, it was interesting to watch the technique.” After leaving the NRA and moving to Pennsylvania in 2011, Ross decided to make her hobby her profession. Her favorite work is making sculpted cakes to fit the occasion. She has carved cakes into dogs, cars, a soccer ball, a sea turtle and many other shapes to fit a particular theme. “The thing that gets me really excited is when I have to do a carved cake,” she said. Ross can decorate a cake to match any color scheme or theme. She is an expert at the use of fondant to produce intricate designs and realistic shapes. “I specialize in the use of fondant. I use a very high grade fondant I get from

Brazil because it tastes amazing,” she said. Taste is always an important part of the perfect cake. While many people still prefer the traditional chocolate or vanilla, the cake itself can be baked in any flavor to fit the client’s taste. “I can make anything,” Ross said. “If there’s a flavor somebody wants that I haven’t done before, I test it until I get it right.” Each cake Ross makes is a cake. I want it to be about the unique. The process can begin with a photo or design provided by the client, or Ross will take the client’s basic idea and turn it into a polished design. “It starts out with a phone call or an email. For weddings, I almost always do a consultation and tasting with the bride and groom. I generally reserve that for large events,” she said. “Some people have very specific ideas and other people have no idea what they want.” Ross is happiest when she can use her imagination and creativity in creating a cake. “I like the complicated stuff,” she said. “I like the very intricate kinds of things with lots of little details. I enjoy the excitement of exceeding their expectations. I just so enjoy being able to do that for people. For me, there’s nothing that’s too hard. Bring on the difficult.” Ross is currently booking orders six weeks in advance, so clients are advised to place orders well in advance. Pricing begins at $175, increasing with size, materials and degree or difficulty. Completed cakes can be delivered anywhere.

A long history of farming at Glen Willow Orchards By John Chambless Staff Writer

T

here has been a farm of some kind on the site of Glen Willow Orchards since long before there was a United States of America. With that kind of history, it’s no surprise that people in Avondale and far beyond have found a path to its long driveway. On a recent weekday afternoon, the parking lot was full and cashiers were busy ringing up purchases in the small farm store. Spread out over the surrounding 155 acres was a tapestry of crops, fruits and flowers that owner Steve Rosazza is justifiably proud of. Steve and his wife, Brenda, took a break from their never-ending duties on the farm to talk about how the family-owned operation has survived, despite the odds. He grew up in the stone home nearby, which has a date stone of 1737. “My father started here in 1953,” Steve said. “It was a fruit farm when he purchased it. It had been fruit since 1925 until the ‘50s. I’m not sure about before then.” Glen Willow grows “everything from asparagus to zucchini,” Brenda said, laughing. The seasons are marked by the produce that comes in from the fields. Steve said, “We do a lot of summer vegetables, as well as the cold crops in the fall. Spring vegetables. Apples and peaches are the main thing, but also pumpkins,” as well as a range of spring blooms and fall flowers that are snatched up by savvy customers who know about the farm despite their low profile on social media, and their lack of advertising. The farm is run by only 10 to 20 people, Steve said, depending on the season. He owns Glen Willow along with his cousin, Ron Rosazza, ——For

and they are constantly busy. “You have to be diversified,” Steve said. “There’s no other option. So you have to have a business background, as well as the knowledge of the fruits and vegetables.” When his father took over the business, “the farm was primarily apples and peaches,” he said. “In the last 30 years, we’ve diversified more into vegetables.” Unlike many large farms, Glen Willow hasn’t had to resort to offering family activities such as corn mazes or hayrides to keep financially afloat. Often, farms that turn to tourism make steady money, but the farming eventually takes a back seat to the entertainment. “We don’t have the staff to offer things like that,” Steve said. “Labor has become more of a problem than growing the products. We’re spread thin as it is, with growing and trying to market our products, let alone trying to do entertainment.”

The produce that starts at Glen Willow ends up locally at Janssen’s Market in Greenville, as well as three local Giant stores in Jennersville, Longwood and Kennett. “We also work with the Chester County Food Bank,” Steve said. Most of their business, however, is selling retail at their farm market. Glen Willow also sells produce that is resold by smaller growers such as Barnard’s Orchard in Unionville, and Wolff’s Apple House in Media, Pa. Steve laughed and said that there have been plenty of offers to buy the huge property for housing, but so far he is holding the line. The number of offers “comes and goes,” he said. “It depends on how the economy’s going.” There aren’t any children who want to take over the operation when Steve and Ron decide to retire, so the future of Glen Willow is unknown. Asked if he can think of any other family-owned farms, Steve thought for a moment and couldn’t come up with many. “Aside from mushroom family farms, there’s Lewis Bernard. He’s the only other one who does the actual growing. People sell the land for housing, or the next generation doesn’t want to take on farming, so the property gets sold,” he said. The farm market is open “11 ½ months a year,” Steve said, and relies on its large sign on Route 41 to guide

motorists to the farm lane, less than half a mile down Glen Willow Road. “Locals know us,” he said. “I guess we could put a market closer to the road and catch more trade, but the local people come to us all year. We don’t even need to advertise.” As the couple spoke, cars jockeyed for position in the parking lot and customers left the market in a steady stream, carrying produce that was perhaps in the fields the day before. From where the Rosazzas were standing, business was very good indeed.

SERVPRO of Kennett Square/Oxford By Marcella Peyre-Ferry Staff Writer

W

hether the damage to your property is from fire, water, mold, biohazard, or any source imaginable, SERVPRO provides a fast response with the expertise in restoration and cleaning to minimize damage and get you or your business back to normal. SERVPRO’s goal is always to restore and clean damaged property so that it’s almost like the disaster never happened SERVPRO of Kennett Square/Oxford is one of nearly 1,800 franchises, with a service area that includes communities along the Route 1 and Route 30 corridors, and all of southern Chester County. A local, family-owned company with more than 50 employees, they also have the national resources of SERVPRO to draw upon when needed. In the event of a major disaster, such as a hurricane, SERVPRO franchises work together to go where they are needed. “We can mobilize up to 1,000-plus franchises if need be,” marketing manager Cliff Masscotte said. SERVPRO of Kennett Square/Oxford is available to help mitigate any type of disaster, from residential damage to large corporate and industrial locations, including 24-hour emergency response service. They’re known for coping with large loss recovery and their disaster response team. “If there is a large loss recovery, if there is fire or water damage that is going to be $50,000 or more, my franchise gets called in to help manage and restore the property back to a pre-loss condition,” Masscotte said. “We like to pride ourselves on our commercial expertise.” In the large loss category SERVPRO of Kennett Square/ Oxford handles all types of restoration for commercial and industrial sites, start to finish. “We handle multi-milliondollar losses into the hundreds of millions of dollars. We handle demolition, we handle entire construction of a home or building -- we’re a full restoration company,” Masscotte said. Fire damage, water damage and mold remediation are primary areas where SERVPRO of Kennett Square/Oxford is able to help. That includes industrial settings where machinery may need to be cleaned after an incident, before production can resume. “It’s not just building materials. It’s machinery, it’s

structural integrity, engineering – there’s a lot of stuff that goes into restoration that people don’t think about,” Masscotte said. SERVPRO of Kennett Square/Oxford is also helpful in developing plans that can limit the amount of damage a business could suffer from a disaster. They will provide businesses with a free “emergency ready profile” that highlights water and gas shut-off locations, contractors, energy suppliers, and more. “It helps to implement emergency procedures if a commercial building ever needs one,” Masscotte said. “If you know where your water shut-offs are, and you have a sprinkler burst on the fifth floor of a 10-story building, gravity takes control. Depending on how long that system stays on, you could have a $5,000 loss if you’re able to shut the water off immediately, or you could have a $100,000 loss, if not more, if you don’t know where the water shut-off is.” SERVPRO has recently merged with Blackstone, one of the largest private equity holders of real estate in the nation. The merger has not changed the high quality and service

available from SERVPRO of Kennett Square/Oxford. SERVPRO of Kennett Square/Oxford works closely with first responders, following up when fire, water, or biohazard cleanup is necessary. They also support local fire, EMS and law enforcement.

|CONNECTIONS| Looking to take a local wine tour? Here’s a recommendation for three nearby tasting rooms – all of whom are members of the Southern Chester County Chamber of Commerce

A wine lover’s tour of our own backyard By Richard L. Gaw Staff Writer

S

everal years ago, I celebrated my wife’s birthday by inviting several Chester County wineries to the party. While the proprietors of these boutique vineyards were not lucky enough to score an invitation, several of their labels did, gracing our dining room table for our guests to enjoy the taste of the Brandywine Valley. The presentation, dotted with literature from some of these vineyards, served as a Who’s Who of Chester County vineyards. Our guests approached the table with little delicacy or curiosity, but rather resembled a pride of lions encircling a lone zebra on an African grassland. “It feels like I’m tasting something that was grown right in my backyard,” one guest said. “Because it practically was,” I answered. “I never knew that local wines could ever taste this good,” said another wine snob who had up to that evening confined his wine-tasting regions to the Napa Valley. “Congratulations,” I said. “You’ve expanded your palette to Chester County.” After the last guest had left in the wee hours of what became the next day, I went to the table to pour myself a congratulatory glass of wine, as a toast to the success of my wife’s special day and the uniqueness of my concept. There was nothing left. Every bottle had been opened, consumed and enjoyed, and every flyer from every

vineyard had been taken. In one evening, I had personally advanced the reach of this surging local industry by two dozen new converts who had been awoken and shown the light that had already began to blind me. On weekends, I began to explore the trail tasting room by tasting room. I got to know winemakers by name. I began to appreciate that I could not only taste products that were grown, harvested and bottled within miles of my home in Landenberg, but that the people who actually did the growing and the harvesting were often the ones pouring the samples. To this day, as a nod to the emerging Pennsylvania wine industry, a Thanksgiving Day visitor to my home will never see a wine bottle from France, Italy, California, New York or even Washington State on the table. I am not alone. The word is out. Thanks to the blend of just the right geography, climate and growing conditions – ones that mimic the Bordeaux region in France – the wine industry in Pennsylvania now falls comfortably below California, Washington State and New York State as the nation’s fourth-leading leading wine-making state, with 12 million gallons produced. There are over 260 wineries in Pennsylvania, and as much as I wish to brag that I have visited them all, I have confined my personal journey to the Brandywine Valley. Among my favorites happen to be Chaddsford Winery, Paradocx Vineyards and Harvest Ridge Winery – all members of the Southern Chester County Chamber of Commerce. Enjoy your tour.

Southern Chester County Chamber of Commerce Member Wineries & Tasting Rooms Chaddsford Winery Established in 1982, Chaddsford Winery is widely regarded as a pioneer in the Pennsylvania wine industry, and with production of approximately 30,000 cases annually, many Chester County wine lovers still look at them as the bedrock of an emerging industry. While the winery has become known for its bountiful social events, cellar tours and tastings, and the cozy ambience of its grounds and tasting room, its success is rooted in its premium, award-winning wines. Focusing on making approachable, food friendly wines that reflect their unique ‘Mid-Atlantic Uplands’ microclimate, Chaddsford Winery expresses their artisanship through a diverse portfolio of dry whites, reds and sweet wines. “Going all the way back to when we were founded, the long term vision of our founders was to establish the Brandywine Valley as a wine destination,” said Corey Krejcik, Chaddsford Winery manager. “At that time, it was thought to be unheard of to produce and bottle wines in southeastern Pennsylvania, but eventually, we established roots and helped pave the way for our peers today.” Throughout the year, Chaddsford Winery rolls out the welcome mat for a host of special events that include the popular Adult Summer Camp, designed to get attendees outside for a day of lawn games, arts-and-crafts, and friendly camaraderie – all while enjoying Chaddsford wine, local beer, and delicious food. The winery’s Adult Trick or Treat Series in October and its Sugar and Spice event in the spring have also been very popular. Yet, at the heart of this winery lay an even larger aspiration, one that has paved the way for other wineries, tasting rooms and winemakers to follow. “The only way to have recognition is to have others follow suit,” Krejcik said. “In a lot of ways, it makes us proud to say that we have achieved our goal by proving that grapes can be grown here, and now we have a lot of other wineries who are helping us push that credibility forward.” Krejcik calls it “customer optionality.” “When you go into any of these spaces, they’re not cookie cutter ——For

replicas of what we have done,” he said. “All of us have our own personalities and our own feel and different strengths and experiences. There is that variety and people can go to one place and get a completely different experience than what they would at another location. It’s part of the beauty of establishing a new wine region.” Tasting Room: 632 Baltimore Pike, Chadds Ford 610-388-6221 www.chaddsford.com

Harvest Ridge Winery and Tasting Room The origins of the Harvest Ridge Winery began in 1995, when owner Chuck Nunan began making wine in his basement to rave reviews. In 2010, during a trip to Charleston, S.C. for his son’s wedding, Nunan visited a winery, and over time, his basement became too small for his big dreams. The land that he and his wife Chris purchased in 2005 in Marydel, Del. – originally intended to become the 20-acre Harvest Ridge family farm – became Harvest Ridge Winery. From the time the first vines were planted in 2011 to the opening of the winery’s tasting room in Toughkenamon in 2018, Harvest Ridge Winery has served as an example of what happens when quality winemaking meets a marketing plan whose principal mission has been to convert visitors into friends and family. The winery’s location in Marydel creates advantageous growing conditions due to its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean to the east and the Chesapeake Bay to the west. While the shallow warmer waters of the Chesapeake create a longer and warmer growing season, the breezes from the Atlantic keeps the humidity low. As a result, Harvest Ridge has quickly become known for its full-bodied Chardonnays, Viogniers, Malbecs and Merlots. At Harvest Ridge Winery, achieving consistent “quality” is an all-hands-on-deck pursuit. “When we create our wines, it’s a complete group effort, with input from our management team, our tasting room managers, our sales manager, the

winemaker and Chuck,” said general manager Kristi May Wyatt. “When we’re all together, we brainstorm and we come up with some great ideas.” On any given weekend at the Toughkenamon tasting room, guests will taste a new pairing of wine and food, enjoy live music, and celebrate with friends and family, whether they are first-time guests or members of the Harvest Ridge Wine Club. “Our personality is that while we’re very educated in wine, we’re also very laid back and fun,” Wyatt said.


Even before the tasting room opened, Harvest Ridge began circulating their brand image throughout the southern Chester County community, with appearances at local events and festivals, as well as membership in the Southern Chester County Chamber of Commerce. Since its opening, the tasting room has figured prominently in the vision to revitalize the Village of Toughkenamon – as part of New Garden Township’s Comprehensive Plan. While quality wines and community form the primary cornerstones of the winery’s growth in Chester County, they share space with the many partnerships Harvest Ridge has made in the county. One collaboration currently in the works is the Harvest Hopsgiving Festival, scheduled for Nov., 2 at New Garden Township Park -- a partnership with Victory Brewing Company and the Chester County Food Bank. In addition to beer and wine, the festival will include food trucks, kid-friendly games, vendors and a food drive coordinated by the Chester County Food Bank, and between 10 and 15 percent of the proceeds from the festival will be given to the food bank. In recent years, proceeds from the sale of the winery’s Blue Line White wine were given to the Ballard Foundation, named in honor of Delaware State Police Corporal Stephen Ballard, who was killed in the line of duty in 2017, which provides donations to his family. Proceeds from the sale of the winery’s Red Line Red were given to the Avondale Police Department and the Chester County Hero Fund. “We’re still fairly new to Chester County, but over time, we’d like to become a leader in this region,” Wyatt said. “We began in Delaware and grew there, and now we’re growing in Chester County. We’re continually looking at where we can make the most impact in the Chester County community.

Paradocx Winery & Vineyard A little more than two decades ago, four physicians in Chester County came up with an idea to build a beautiful vineyard, for the sole purpose of fulfilling a shared dream. Dr. David Hoffman and his wife, Dr. Carol Hoffman, and Dr. Mark Harris and his wife, Dr. JoAnn Harris called their vineyard “Paradocx,” a play on words from “pair of docs.” Today, as Paradocx celebrates its 21st year, their dream sits on a little more than 100 acres in Landenberg, and Paradocx wines have become some of the most-highly regarded varietals produced in the ever-growing winemaking world in Chester County, boosted by commercial sales at several stores and restaurants, and two tasting rooms: at the Market at Liberty Place in Kennett Square, and their beautiful and spacious tasting room at 1833 Flint Hill Road in Landenberg. “You can buy Paradocx wine in a variety of grocery stores and wine shops in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware, but for the people who come to our tasting rooms, they get the true ‘Paradocx Experience,’” said general manger Trish Brown. “We want them to feel like they are a part of the Paradocx family.” While the “Paradocx Experience” includes the camaraderie of friends and the enjoyment of great wine, it begins in the vineyards and in the art of winemaking. The winery now produces 20 unique varieties that include award-winning wines like its 2017 PDX Chardonnay, the 2015 Merlot, the winery’s Catawba sweet wine and its 2017 Viva La Rose Rose.

he people behind any organization are the most valuable assets. Nowhere is that truer than at the Chester County Economic Development Council (CCEDC). Over the course of its 60-year existence, this organization has been fortunate to have had hundreds of dedicated board members, thousands of generous investors, and countless committed volunteers supporting the services provided by their passionate and loyal staff. CCEDC is a private, non-governmental entity that promotes a competitive edge for existing and new businesses by providing proven financial solutions; cultivating workforce talent; leveraging business partnerships; and fostering entrepreneurial collaboration for 60 years. CCEDC services improve the business community and enhance the quality of life in Chester County and the region. The impact of CCEDC on the growth and prosperity can be seen in the performance of companies in high-priority industries in the county and region -- IT/communications, life sciences, health care, finance and banking, advanced manufacturing and agriculture. CCEDC provides services to the business community that have been showcased and recognized by many. Their ability to help companies with finance/capital needs, location and site support, and connections to educated, good quality workers ranks among the best in the region and state. CCEDE, is led by President and CEO, Gary W. Smith, who has been with the company for more than 40 years, during which CCEDC has achieved many milestones. Helping businesses of all kinds find the funds to pave the way to success is part of the mission. In the past 10 years, 351 projects were funded through their Seedcopa team for more than $285,000,000; 221 projects were funded with grants from the federal, state and local sources; and 113 Next Generation Farm Loans were processed for $44,265,000.

What we do is we try to empower others,” Smith said. “We work with anyone who has a business idea or concept.” This applies to businesses of all ——For

sizes and kinds -- from new startups to wellestablished businesses that are growing and changing -- who need help to advance their objectives. CCEDE also works with farmers and agricultural businesses, including mushroom operations and Amish farmers in need of loans to buy new farms. This includes new Gary W. Smith, President and CEO farmers just establishing themselves, and those who have been in local agriculture for generations. CCEDE is a resource for all businesses in Chester County. In Southern Chester County, they have been especially busy helping to develop sustainable growth in businesses along the Route 1 corridor. “It’s an emerging market. Activity within the Route 1 corridor is the thread that ties all of Southern Chester County together,” Smith said. “We are working to help develop the area in concert with the County Commissioners. About three years ago, we brought in the Chamber as a key partner with that initiative. They are the voices for that market and we partner with them to bring full economic development services to the southern part of the county. “In partnership with the Southern Chester County Chamber, we assembled an advisory board to give us input. We brought in local municipal leadership and tried to work in a cohesive, collaborative format to bring about sound economic development initiatives that would advance the common need of all those communities,” Smith said. Whether it be the impact of technological advances on employees, the smart development growth of our key corridors, or critical career guidance and exploration of the future workforce, the CCEDE looks forward to addressing the needs of Chester County businesses today and into the future.

Hybrid ORs and the

future of medicine LET’S TALK ABOUT CARS FOR A SECOND. A traditional car runs on just a gasoline engine. A hybrid car, on the other hand, has that plus an electric motor. Both cars will eventually get you to the same location, but the mechanical process of getting there and the quality of the ride might be a little different. A hybrid operating room works similarly. In a traditional operating room (OR), a surgical team uses typical surgical equipment to perform a procedure. In a hybrid OR, it’s not just the surgical team and equipment — there are multiple types of specialists and many different types of equipment. For example, if a patient is having heart surgery, it might not be just the cardiac surgeon and surgical nurses in the surgical theatre — there may also be cardiac interventionists and vascular surgeons. A patient can be treated in either a traditional or hybrid OR. But just like the traditional or hybrid car, the surgical process and the patient experience might have some differences. In 2020, Chester County Hospital will be opening a new hybrid OR for heart procedures. If your heart surgery is performed in the hybrid OR, here’s how your surgery might be different then than it would be now. IMAGING TESTS DURING PROCEDURES WILL BE QUICKER AND BETTER. Having imaging tests, such as X-rays or ultrasounds, are a normal part of preparing for surgery. Sometimes, a surgeon will need additional images in the middle of a procedure — and in a traditional OR, those images can throw a detour into the surgery. In a regular OR, the surgeon will need to use portable equipment that’s brought in from another room. Taking time to bring in the equipment and set it up adds time to the procedure. The longer your procedure, the more time you spend under anesthesia — the medicine that makes you fall asleep so you don’t feel pain or remember the procedure. Anesthesia is generally safe, but it does come with risks of complications, such as breathing or heart problems. These risks increase the longer you’re under anesthesia. Also, longer durations of anesthesia have been associated with increased time spent in the hospital after surgery or having to return to the OR for another procedure. The hybrid OR has imaging equipment right there, which can mean fewer delays, and less time under anesthesia. The hybrid OR also lends itself to minimally invasive procedures, which usually means a shorter recovery time and less time

spent in the hospital. “Patients are able to get back to work and their daily activities much sooner. It allows you to quickly go back to your regular life,” says Michael Barber, Senior Vice-President, Chief Operating Ofłcer at Chester County Hospital. YOU WILL BE MORE LIKELY TO HAVE MINIMALLY INVASIVE SURGERY INSTEAD OF OPEN SURGERY. In a minimally invasive procedure, the surgeon will make a few small cuts, rather than large incisions. “With the hybrid OR, we will be able to accommodate even more patients who need minimally invasive procedures than we already do,” continues Barber. YOUR SURGEON WILL HAVE MORE FLEXIBILITY. Sometimes, surgeries don’t always go quite as planned. During a minimally invasive procedure, it’s possible that the surgeon will realize that they need to perform a more invasive surgery. Or, they may be using one mode of surgery, and decide that they need to switch to a different one. In a traditional OR, this could prove complicated. The surgical team could potentially need to switch you to a different operating room. However, the hybrid OR is equipped to easily turn from a minimally invasive to a more invasive operative setting, and from one mode of surgery to another. Your surgeon will be able to update their method right then and there which is better for the patient. “The hybrid OR gives you the best of both worlds -- you get high-quality imaging, while also getting the space and visibility of a typical OR,” conłrms Mary Kehner, BSN,MS,RN,CNOR, Director, Surgical Services at Chester County Hospital. THE SURGERY WILL BE MORE PRECISE — AND MAYBE MORE SUCCESSFUL. One of the more challenging parts of


surgery is making sure that patients are in the right position. The hybrid OR comes with a table that can be tilted and inclined to many different positions, allowing the surgeon to maneuver patients into the best position for a speciłc procedure. The table is connected to imaging equipment. This equipment recognizes and follows the table position — without the surgical team having to do a thing — and captures images of the surgical area from almost any angle. This is extremely important. Getting a patient to the perfect position and allowing the surgeon to come in at the right angle, as well as having pictures from all different angles, makes it easier for them to be more precise. And the better the precision, the lower the risk of complications, and the greater the likelihood that the surgery will be successful. THE OPERATING ROOM WILL BE EVEN SAFER THAN IT ALREADY IS. When you need surgery, you might be worried about your safety. And that’s perfectly normal. In any type of operating room, safety is the top priority - rest assured that no matter which room you’re in, the surgical team is looking out for your safety at all times. ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY ONLY GOES SO FAR — AND THAT’S WHY WE’RE HERE. When our hybrid OR opens in 2020, we will have some of the most modern, advanced equipment in the region. But it’s not just the technology that makes our hybrid OR special. “In every operating room at Chester County Hospital, the surgical team works together seamlessly,” states Barber. “Everyone on the team — surgeons, nurses, technicians — has extensive training and experience, and works together to deliver the best care. And we can’t wait to bring those same levels of passion, expertise, and teamwork to the new hybrid OR’s.”

WHILE TRADITIONAL ORS ARE VERY SAFE,

THE HYBRID OR CAN INCREASE SAFETY EVEN MORE: The imaging equipment will only use VERY LOW DOSES OF RADIATION. The table can hold UP TO 550 POUNDS OF PATIENT WEIGHT, which means that obese patients will rarely be unable to have surgery due to their size. Patients in hybrid ORs may SPEND LESS TIME UNDER ANESTHESIA than patients in regular ORs, which lowers the risk of anesthesia-related complications. IF A PATIENT DOES NEED TO BE OPENED UP UNEXPECTEDLY, THE HYBRID OR IS EQUIPPED TO HANDLE IT, and the staff is well-trained in going from a minimally invasive to an open procedure.


|CONNECTIONS| The Kennett Library

A community center in the digital age By Steven Hoffman Staff Writer

T

he Kennett Library is poised to enter an exciting new phase of its 124-year history of serving the Kennett area as officials plan a new, modern 29,257-square-foot facility that will be a community center for the digital age.

The project reached another milestone in December of 2018 when library officials agreed on architectural schematics designs for a library for the 21st century—Nearly three times the size of the current building, the new library will contain spaces for collaboration and learning, 15 public meeting rooms, maker spaces featuring state-of-the-art technology, and a 110-seat auditorium with a stage. There will be plenty of room for books and

children’s programs, as well as quiet study areas. Plans also include a total of 37 parking spaces designated for library patrons. In short, it will be a dynamic community center for a dynamic area that utilizes the library’s varied resources in significant numbers. Last year alone, the Kennett Library welcomed more than 122,000 visitors and there were more than 1,000 free programs, classes, and events offered to the community. “People are excited about the library,” explained Jeff Yetter, the vice president of the library’s board of trustees. “Our new home will be a community hub, offering flexible spaces for people to gather.” While preparations for the construction of a new building continue, library director Megan Walters and the staff remain focused on the programs and services that have kept the Kennett Library relevant—and more vital than ever—in a digital world. Last year, nearly 21,000 members of the community attended one or more of the 1,074 programs that the library held—these programs included everything from family story times to chocolate tasting workshops to SCORE business seminars. Approximately 14,500 students attended programs centered around art, music, science, technology, and books. “We’re a busy place,” Walters said. There are 1,001 ways in which a library in a small town in Pennsylvania in 2019 differs from the one

in 1961, the year the current Kennett Library building was constructed. “Libraries have morphed since the 1950s and 1960s when it was all about books,” Yetter explained. “Today a library is really a community center.” Walters added, “The plans for the new library are a continuation of the idea that if we don’t continue to evolve and change, we will become obsolete.” The new library, which will be located at the corner of Willow and State streets in downtown Kennett Square, just a few blocks from the current location, is envisioned as a place that will embrace the history, culture, and diversity of the region. As such, it will be a focal point of the entire community. Right now, it falls on the shoulders of the staff to make sure that the Kennett Library can offer the 21st century resources in an outdated and overcrowded building that is wholly inadequate when it comes to meeting the needs of a service area of more than 45,000 people in Kennett Square Borough and the townships of Kennett, Pennsbury, Pocopson, Newlin, New Garden, East Marlborough, and West Marlborough. In a very cramped 11,000 square feet, the library totaled 188,114 materials circulated last year. There were 9,937 hours of computer use, 4,572 hours of one-on-one tutoring, and

51,241 e-books downloaded. A video game club averaged between 80 and 90 participants. Teens and tweens showed up for screenings of “Stranger Things” and other activities aimed at keeping that age group engaged. The Kennett Library recently held a popular “maker camp” for older children, but the event had to be held at the Upland Country Day School because the current building doesn’t have a space appropriate for such an activity. The library even has a seed catalog that allows anyone to come in and get flower seeds or vegetable seeds, or to share seeds with others in the community. The Kennett Library broadens its reach by partnering with about 40 different organizations in the community in a variety of ways. The library website features a community calendar that places all the library activities, as well as events of local nonprofits, in one convenient location for local residents. A major point of pride for the library is the Adult Literacy Program, which celebrated its 40th anniversary this year. The Kennett Square area is a very diverse community, and the Adult Literacy Program has been an invaluable resource for English as a second language learners, helping people from more than 50 different countries through the years. Approximately 150 volunteer tutors in the Adult Literacy Program provided assistance to about 350 students last year, helping them with their literacy skills, to complete a G.E.D. program, or study for a driver’s license test. Tutors also assist people who are preparing to take the U.S. Citizenship Test, and so far this year four people have passed the test and two more people will soon take the test. People from all over the world have settled in the Kennett Square area, and the library has been able to provide invaluable resources to them. “I’m constantly surprised by the variety of places that people come from,” Walters said, noting that currently more than 16 or 17 countries are represented by students of the Adult Literacy Program. Walters added that being a welcoming place where everyone can feel comfortable is crucial to the mission of the library. Doug Doerfler, a Kennett Square resident who serves as the president of Kennett Square Borough Council, said that the library does a good job of meeting the needs of the entire community. “We are lucky to have the Kennett Library right here in town, as it connects all the communities it serves,” Doerfler said. “Just look at the library calendar and see the numerous opportunities, from fun reading programs to educational resources to programs for under-served populations—there is something for the young and old alike. This reflects the core mission of the library to be the center of lifelong learning for all our community members.” The value of a library to a community can be quantified in a number of different ways. For example, the 41,727 children’s books borrowed in 2018 would have cost somewhere around $667,632 if the readers had to buy the

36

——Fall/Winter

books instead of checking them out from the library. The 11,017 times the library met reference needs of patron amounts to about $132,204 in services. The 292 English as a Second Language Program students would have paid a combined $233,600 for the benefits of the two-semester course. Add it all up, and the Kennett Library provided $4,049,747 in estimated value added to the community in 2018. That’s just in one year, and the library has been serving the Kennett area for 124 years. Yetter said that for every dollar that is contributed, the library returns $4.33 on the investment. “It’s probably the best investment you can make,” Yetter said. “Where else can you get a return on your investment of more than four-to-one?” Yetter said that the value that a library brings to a community makes it vitally important to build a new library that will fully meet the needs of the service area.

“Libraries end up being the second most-used buildings in a town, next to high schools,” Yetter explained. “We know that we are drivers of other business activities for the town. Libraries help to bring people to town.” Yetter said that the library is now in the “quiet phase” of the fundraising campaign for the new library as officials work largely behind-the-scenes to engage potential large donors for the capital campaign. The library just received its first $1 million private donation from a member of the community who wishes to remain anonymous. The estimated cost of the entire project is about $14.9 million, and the expectation is that they will be able to secure several million dollars in funding from state and county sources. Yetter noted that the library has already been awarded a $1 million grant through the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program, and they are in the process of securing other grants. The project could also qualify for funding from some of the foundations and charitable trusts that support arts

and culture in the region. The library is asking the eight municipalities that they serve to contribute $3 million combined to the fundraising effort. Then the library will reach out to the community for donations. These donations for the new library are already being accepted through the website at kennettlibrary.org. Once they have about 70 percent of the funding secured, Yetter said, they can start making plans to break ground. Library officials look at the new library as a one-time investment that will pay dividends to the entire community for decades to come. “We think the new library can make a major impact on the community,” Yetter said, explaining that it is expected that the new library will attract around 250,000 visitors per year.

Recreation Resource USA By Marcella Peyre-Ferry Staff Writer

ccupying a place in the niche industry of outdoor commercial recreation equipment is Recreation Resource USA, a family business with roots in Kennett Square. The company was founded in 1987 in Kennett Square as Recreation Resource, Inc., and transitioned with the Umbreit family at the helm as Recreation Resource USA in 2013. The company produces top-quality recreation equipment for parks, schools, day care centers, and anywhere that durable, safe equipment is needed. “Playgrounds are sold for backyards, of course, but our business is much different,” said Vice President Kevin Umbreit. “The backyard equipment is made for consumer use for a few years. The equipment we sell is made of steel and very thick plastic and other types of materials that are meant to withstand the weather and constant use and abuse that you get in a schoolyard, park or other setting like that.” In addition to safety and durability, playgrounds from Recreation Resource USA are designed to be attractive, and encourage active, imaginative play. “There are playgrounds that are available as themes. We bring a level of interpretation from the customer to the factory, with ideas that make it special for them and make it fit in to their community,” Umbreit said. That might include a nature, ship, or rocket theme, designs with fire trucks and police vehicles, or specialized structures that add music, art or other features to the typical playground equipment. Locally, Recreation Resource USA has installed the extensive East Goshen Township Park, one of the largest parks in the county. Other clients include the Kennett Consolidated School District, Unionville-Chadds Ford School District, Pocopson Township, Kennett Township, Ursuline Academy and Academia Antonia Alonso Charter School (both in Wilmington), and local homeowners associations. They are also responsible for the ——For

layout and installation of the playground at Oxford Memorial Park, which is designed to be fully accessible to children of all abilities. “Inclusivity and accessibility are really important in today’s playgrounds and schools,” Managing Member Sylvia Umbreit said. “We work with a Tier 1 manufacturer located in Wisconsin that is soon celebrating its 100th year in business. They will put together designs that are compliant for the ASTM standards. We can tweak the design to customer wishes and present them with a turnkey operation as well.” In addition to playground structures, Recreation Resource is able to provide recreation equipment for all ages, such as pavilions, bike racks, trash receptacles, benches, bleachers, walking bridges, and

commercial athletic equipment. “We now offer splash pad equipment as well. Sprays of water through canisters and above ground features set in a concrete pad deliver summertime relief and play according to Sylvia Umbreit. The spray parks are being sought after as a replacement for aging swimming pools in many urban areas. Keeping up with the newest interests, the company is also able to offer a variation on the traditional fitness trail inspired by television’s ninja competitions. “There’s even an app you can have on your smartphone that will time your run through the course,” Kevin Umbreit said. Recreation Resource USA serves several states with five outside sales representatives and two in-house product specialists covering West Virginia, Delaware, New Jersey and all of Pennsylvania. Complete installation services are available, including safety surfacing for play areas from engineered wood fiber to artificial turf to poured-in-place rubber. “There are many playground manufacturers out there. In this business, with something that gets sun, rain, wind, snow and ice, you get what you pay for,” Kevin Umbreit said. “We may not be the cheapest one out there, but we

are the one that has the best equipment that is going to last the longest and has the strongest warranty behind it, and it has our support behind it as well. We’re not the most expensive, either, and it’s all made in the USA.” “I think that there’s a great joy in bringing recreation to different people in different areas according to what their needs or desires are. We see children excitedly approach a playground where there was no playground before. The joy is really heartwarming to see,” Sylvia Umbreit said.

Realizing strategic plan central to Lincoln University’s next chapter

eading a university takes myriad talents and skills, and certainly one of those must be the ability to envision how the institution can best prepare its students for life after graduation in a swiftly changing world. Dr. Brenda A. Allen, president of Lincoln University, knows this well. The 1981 Lincoln undergraduate alumna returned in 2017 to take the reins of the recognized Historically Black liberal arts college. Once in the position, she said, “I started looking around at Lincoln -- where it was today and where it’s been historically.” In her research, she noted, there were “places where we ——For

had really grown and had become stronger over the years, and some places where we needed to pay some attention, especially given the context of small colleges and small, Historically Black colleges.” Those colleges needed to understand, redefine and recommit themselves to their mission and to do that by determining their distinctive niche. To hone and clarify the objectives, Allen appointed a Strategic Planning Council comprised of students, faculty, staff, alumni and trustees. Building on data gathered in 2015, the resulting strategic plan -- “Reimagining the Legacy: Learn. Liberate. Lead.” – was implemented in April 2018. Its stated mission is threefold: “Providing a rigorous liberal arts education featuring active and collaborative

learning; integrating academic and co-curricular programs with the university’s distinctive legacy of global engagement, social responsibility and leadership development; and cultivating the character, values and standards of excellence needed to enable students to become responsible citizens of a global community.” The vision of the plan is to be a national model for the school’s liberal arts programs -- undergraduate, graduate and professional. Lincoln offers undergraduate BA and BS degrees in a variety of majors, from anthropology to criminal justice to physics. Its graduate school, located in Philadelphia, has MBA, M.Ed. and MAHS programs of study. Established in 1854, the university has many notable alumni, including U.S. Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall; world-renowned poet Langston Hughes; and Judge Jacqueline F. Allen, administrative judge of the trial division of the Common Pleas Court, Philadelphia. Among the graduates who have gone on to become world leaders: Nnamdi Azikiwe, the first president of Nigeria; Kwame Nkrumah, the first president of Ghana; and Saara Kuugongelwa-Amadhila, the first female Prime Minister of Namibia. Lincoln is also the nation’s first degree-granting Historically Black College and University (HBCU). “Through the liberal arts, we’ve been able to graduate students across all areas of academic art and sciences with a certain set of basic skills that had been consistent,” Allen said. “That is, the focus on problem-solving skills, leadership, critical thinking, reading, writing and speaking.” Allen, who earned her PhD in developmental psychology from Howard University in Washington, D.C., and describes herself as a “staunch proponent of a liberal arts education,” wanted to ensure that the educational experience at Lincoln University will prime students for the next phase of 42

their lives. Allen said it’s taking those essential or “soft” skills and “exploring the dynamic 21st-century economy and the jobs that our graduates will have four or five years from now, some that don’t even exist yet. “The challenge is this,” she said. “How do you prepare students to be successful in this sort of uncertain, unprecedented marketplace today?” Allen’s own impressive career includes positions at Smith College, as well as both Brown and Yale universities. Prior to coming to Lincoln, she served as provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs at Winston Salem State University


in North Carolina. A tenured professor in the Psychological Sciences Department there, among her many accomplishments was overseeing a revision of the school’s curriculum. Wanting to underscore the university’s objective and remain relevant, she said, is what “led to having a bunch of discussions with alumni and faculty, students and staff about the centrality of the liberal arts mission to Lincoln. Whether or not it was, a rededication to that mission was important; it’s in our DNA. “The way the liberal arts approach education makes so much sense, relative to how you’re preparing students in the 21st century and then through that we revised the mission. Once we revived the mission and placed a focus on the liberal arts, especially the marriage between curricular and co-curricular, it just sort of led to all the other kind of strategic goals we have.” Allen explained the strategic plan’s name. “Those three words – learn, liberate and lead -- came out of one of my younger cabinet members who had been sitting through all these conversations, thinking about what the words meant to him. “The learning part is really about our emphasis and

responsibility to help our students acquire as much content knowledge as possible. The liberate part though is really about the essential skills, because it’s one thing to sort of know someone’s theory or know methodology, but it’s another thing to be liberated and independent enough in your thinking to be able to create new knowledge and reconstruct it for the purposes of what you want to do. If you not only have a good body of acquired knowledge and the ability to think it through in your own independent way, that prepares you for the leadership at work.” Supporting education outside the classroom is crucial to student development, Allen said. Internships and studying abroad are co-curricular experiences that “help to build skills and abilities, so that when they graduate, they graduate strong as deep thinkers and good communicators.” Those skills are key for the leadership roles for which the university is grooming its students. “We’ve started to reach out and build more partnerships,” Allen said, “because in order for us to really give our students the requisite experience and success, we had to have a lot of partners who open up their corporations for our Continued on Page 44

students to be able to get more hands-on activities.” The president summed up the value of Lincoln University’s liberal arts education. “Whether you graduate as an art major or as a zoology major, you may have different strengths and different knowledge in terms of content, but regardless of your major, you will emerge here with the strong, essential skills needed to take that education and make it whatever you want in the world.” Natalie Smith may be contacted at DoubleSMedia@rocketmail.com.

Spanish Health Ministry By Marcella Peyre-Ferry Staff Writer

ased in Kennett Square, the Spanish Health Ministry offers hope and help to Spanish-speaking families dealing with a highrisk pregnancy, and disabled or medically fragile babies and children. This faith-based ministry provides assistance with spiritual as well as medical needs of these families throughout southern Chester County. After studying and working in Ecuador, Registered Nurse Dona Sensenig started work with the Chester County Health Department in 1975 as a public health nurse, visiting pregnant women.

I assumed it would be foreign missions and He brought includes transportation to and from medical appointments, me right back home,” Sensenig said. She and bilingual and being present during those appointments to translate teacher Bonnie Martin met while attending a prayer group and supplement information. “We can coordinate the care they are receiving.

transportation, translation and interpretation for medical appointments; one-time assistance for purchase of prescriptions and/or medical supplies; layettes for families with newborns; and counseling and support for high-risk pregnancies, post-abortion stress and parents with a chronically ill or dying child. The ministry can also serve as an insurance advocate to help with the financial side of the medical issues. “Everything we do is in Spanish, such as applications through the state, not private insurance,” Sensenig said. “These applications are very complicated, especially when you do not read or write English.” An important aspect of the ministry is the help they provide with spiritual needs for the entire family through Bible study groups, Good Friday programs, an annual trip to the Spanish Bible Conference, and Vacation Bible School. The Friday Bible study is particularly popular with the mothers. “Most of them start out because they have a special needs child or special needs themselves. They become a support to one another as we look to the word of God and we pray and we sing,” Sensenig said. Spiritual help is particularly important when the birth of a

child with long-term special needs may be viewed by some as a punishment. “I can’t change that their kids have been born with a handicap, but I can help them to have spiritual security to understand that these children are not a curse,” Sensenig said. “If I can help the families come to a sense of peace that God is not cursing us or disciplining us, but he’s blessing us with this child, and to know that God loves them and loves this child. That is just as important to me as what I do medically. The two tie in together very closely.” The ministry receives no government funding. It is supported by many area churches, as well as individuals and businesses. Volunteers who would like to be involved do not need to speak Spanish. They are needed to help with office work and transportation, and with children. Taxdeductible donations are also greatly appreciated. Spanish Health Ministry is based at 205 E. State St., Kennett Square, For more information, visit www.spanishhealthministry.org or call 610-444-3001.
