A Message from Kimberley Vassal Insurance

Local food. Local theater. Local products. We’re paying more and more attention to things that come directly from our own communities. Why shouldn’t your insurance agent be local, too?

Everyone hates feeling like a number, and we promise never to make you feel that way. We’re local. We live here, in the same community that you do. We understand the unique dangers that face our town: How the backroads tend to curve sharply, or how slippery that hill outside of town can be in the winter. Our understanding makes it easier for us to help you avoid needing to make a claim in the first place or how to clean up afterwards.

Kimberley Vassal Insurance has been located in the Chester County area for over a decade. Why not let us help you? When it comes to your insurance agent, shop local! For more information or a free insurance quote visit http://www.kimberleyvassal.com

West Chester Restaurants donate $25,000 to Local Programs


I was recently browsing over the Downtownwestchester.com website when I came across this article that talks about how many local West Chester restaurants gave back to our community! Read the full article below and make sure to visit http://www.downtownwestchester.com for other great articles.

The Downtown West Chester restaurant community joined together and raised $25,000 for the West Chester Fire Department and YPAL, a program of the YMCA of the Brandywine Valley. The funds were raised during the Bartenders Ball, and annual event that takes place at the Chester County Historical Society.

Linda Herron, representing the restaurant community, presented a check for $23,500 to Chief Dale McClure to support the efforts of the West Chester Fire Department. It consists of three companies: First West Chester Fire Company;Good Will Fire Company; and Fame Fire Company. The companies are one-hundred percent volunteer and date back to 1799. A check for $1,500 was also presented to the YMCA PAL program which focuses on improving the lives and futures of children in need by providing safe, supervised quality care for ages 5 to 15.

Wristband Night at the Goshen Fair!

The Goshen Country Fair moves into its fourth day on Thursday with wristband night.  Fair-goers can simply purchase a wristband for $25 at the ticket booths, and that will get them on any ride as many times as they want from 6-10 p.m.

Besides wristbands, Thursday will also include cow judging, cake judging and a motorcycle show. The fair will also feature live music on Thursday by the Chester County Lawmen as well as the nightly pie-eating contest and the tug-o-war. The Goshen Country Fair will continue to run through this week with the last day on Saturday, August 4.  All proceeds go to help the Goshen Fire Company. The Goshen Country Fair is located at 1320 Park Avenue in West Chester.
