Brandywine Battlefield Needs Your Help!
The Brandywine Battlefield which is now locally run and not run by the state needs help. They have raised over $240,000.00 dollars and need another $60,000.00 for a total of $300,000.00 by September 30. They need the money to get money from the state to keep the park open and running. The Battlefield gets over 50,000 visitors a year many are local people and school students. The Delco Tourist Bureau donated 600 dollars would be nice if they donated more, they are making their October 19th event, Taste and Tour of the Countryside a fundraiser for the park.. If you would like to help you can make a donation you can mail it to "Friends of the Brandywine Battlefield" P.O. Box 202 Chadds Ford Pa. 19317. The park is one of the largest and prettiest in the county and deserves our help. Take the time to make a donation to preserve this great historical site.
