Speed painting and story telling comes to the Brandywine Summit Camp Meeting on July 6. Dave Weiss will entertain with a religious message beginning at 7 p.m. The camp Meeting is at 119 Beaver valley Road.

Pony Partners will be offered through Chester County 4-H from July 8 – 12, from 10 a.m. – noon at the Romano 4-H Center, 1841 Horseshoe Pike in Honey Brook. Geared for children with no prior horse or large animal experience, campers will learn safety, grooming techniques and non-verbal communication. Campers will learn behavioral skills as they recognize that horses respond directly to their behavior and body language.  The ability to interact safely with an animal larger than you, for a child, builds great self-assurance, trust, and is a lot of fun. The cost of Pony Partners Camp is $75.00.
