Sports Museum, Where are food comes from and how about some tea?

No one is alive today that remembers Marcus Hook as a sleepy little fishing town, whose biggest industry was boat building. Then came the Pew Family! This is the Marcus Riverfront about 1904.

In the Mickey Vernon Sports History Museum's new exhibit,

Athletes and Authors

Books by and about Delaware County Sports Legends,

there is a special baseball section saluting those Delaware County players who served in the military. Given special recognition in this section are Jimmy Dykes (WW I ), Mickey Vernon, Danny Murtaugh, and Stanley Glenn (WW II), and Terry Allvord (Iraq).
In association with this exhibit, the museum is sponsoring a Veterans Day Contest. If you know the names of the living members of Baseball's Hall of Fame that served in the military during WW II, email your answer to On November 11th (Veterans Day), a winner will be selected from all correct answers submitted. The museum has a nice surprise gift for the winner.
The Mickey Vernon Sports History Museum is located in the Granite Run Mall, on the second floor near Boscov's, and is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 am to 4:30 pm.

Home for the Holidays

begins in Aston

on November 2, 2014

noon to 2pm,

when Aston Township Historical Society

welcomes the public to it's annual Holiday Tea, Tour, and Tree Trimming event at the Village Green School House. 
This charming one room school house offers a step back in time. Help decorate the Christmas Tree, ring the school bell, enjoy the antique toy display, sit in a replica outhouse, sit at an old fashion desk and put your head through the story board to take pictures! Plus free goodies! What a delightful way to start off the Holiday Season and gift shopping! Village Green School House is located on Old Pennell Road, just off Pennell Road north of 5 Points next to Aston Vets. The event is free and open to the public. Aston Historical welcomes old photos, donations and volunteers. To make this day even better, the beautiful historic Cavalry Episcopal Church is conducting free guided tours of their historic cemetery which dates back to the early 1800's. Take a leisurely stroll to meet and learn about our interesting and noted "neighbors" from 11:30am to 2pm. There will be actors depicting the notable "guests" to enhance the guided tour! The cemetery is located behind this quaint and treasured church on Mount Road just off Pennell Road across from Kings Mill. This event is also free and open to the public. Donations are also welcomed. This also is a great opportunity for Passport to History students to get their passports stamped! Please start the Holiday Season in Aston at these events!

  1. I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.
