U.S. Military All Stars, my walking tour and History Flea market in Tinicum

Ridley Park's Library is 100 years old this month!

Still a few spots left on my walking tour in Ridley Park if anyone wants to come see the info below. And visit Langguth's Gift Shop in Ridley Park and see pictures of Ridley Park's 75th Anniversary pictures from 50 years ago. Including a picture of Larry Langguth, himself from 50 years ago!
Delaware County’s Brandywine CVB to Salute
U.S. Military All Stars at the Media Theater

Delaware County’s Brandywine
Convention and Visitors Bureau
has announced
that on June 7th at 7:30 PM there

will be a preview showing of a new dvd entitled Ballfield to Battlefield and Back–
From FDR to JFK at the Media Theater on 104 East State Street in Media, PA.

This presentation is a sixty minute dvd filmed and narrated by two former major league
players–George Case and Delaware County’s own Mickey Vernon. Mickey
and George are gone now, but through their eyes you can get a first-hand look
at life in the big leagues from 1939-1962 by those that lived it. The DVD shows
more than 80 major league players who served in our Armed Forces.

The showing will be attended by the U.S. Military All-Stars. They will be in the
area for a game to be played against the Delco League All-Stars at The Glen Mills
Schools. The game will be played on the school’s Everett Swanson Field on D-Day,
