Happy Johnny Appleseed Day!

Apples are an all-American success story-each ...

Johnny Appleseed Day is celebrated today, September 26th! John Chapman, aka Johnny Appleseed, was a Massachusetts-born philosopher and philanthropist, who, beginning in 1802, wandered through northern and Midwestern states planting apple nurseries. His trees fed many settlers, and he was loved wherever he went.

Fall brings forth a time for harvest, and apple picking is a fun fall activity that family and friends can do together. Head right outside of town to Highland Orchards! They offer apple picking all fall. Not much for the outdoors? The West Chester Growers Market also offers farm fresh apples and other fruits.

America Remembers 9/11

 

Today marks the 11th year since the 9/11 terrorist attacks on America. Today, is a day of remembrance and honor for those who lost their lives on 9/11, as well as for the people fighting to keep our country safe.

All around the world people have been paying tribute to this day of remembrance. President Obama spoke earlier this morning at the pentagon were families and military brass gathered, “Eleven times we have marked another September 11th come and gone. Eleven times, we have paused in remembrance, in reflection, in unity and in purpose, This is never an easy day.”

Romney shook the hands of a dozen or so firefighters one by one as they stood on the tarmac of O’Hare International Airport  before boarding his plane to Reno, Nev., where he is scheduled to address the National Guard Association convention. “Those who would attack us should know that we are united,” Romney said in a statement. “Eleven years ago, evil descended upon our country, taking thousands of lives in an unspeakable attack against innocents. America will never forget those who perished. America will never stop caring for the loved ones they left behind. And America shall remain ever-vigilant against those who would do us harm.”
