HENRY WINKLER is Special Guest at WCU
Apr 17 @ 8:00 PM

HENRY WINKLER is Special Guest on April 17 as Part of West Chester University’s Annual Fundraising Gala

On Saturday, April 17 at 8 p.m., West Chester University President Christopher Fiorentino, and wife Susan Fiorentino, will host a virtual conversation with award-winning actor, director, producer, and writer, HENRY WINKLER. The evening of entertainment is part of West Chester University’s 38th Annual Presidential Scholarship Community Gala – the 2021: G.A.L.A. $50 provides household log-in access to the event. A more intimate, post-event meet and greet where buyers can interact with Winkler in small-group breakout rooms is available for an additional $150. Tickets are purchasable at http://go.wcufoundation.org/events/gala. For more information, contact the Events Office at events@wcufoundation.org.

Through humorous anecdotes and inspirational life lessons about overcoming adversity, to tales of a storied career in television and entertainment, groups of all ages will leave Winkler’s presentation inspired and entertained. Winkler’s passion for supporting others is the result of a lifetime struggle with undiagnosed dyslexia, and Winkler has worked tirelessly to bring awareness and support to children who learn differently by advocating for changes in the education system and informing parents and teachers about learning challenges.

Each year, the West Chester University gala draws more than 300 members of the community to an event that is dedicated to the continued academic success of West Chester University students. Since its inception in 1983, the benefit has raised more than $1.2 million dollars for West Chester University students through a renewable, four-year Presidential Scholarship, which is designed to provide financial assistance to students who have demonstrated a commitment to academic excellence.

Open Space Summit
Apr 29 @ 6:30 AM

Chester County to Hold Virtual Open Space Summit
Celebration of county’s open space preservation achievements scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on April 29 th

WEST CHESTER, PA_ Chester County Commissioners Marian Moskowitz, Josh Maxwell and Michelle Kichline, along with leaders of Chester County’s Planning Commission and Parks + Preservation, are hosting the annual Open Space Summit on Thursday, April 29, 2021.
The Summit includes a report on Chester County’s 2020 open space preservation achievements and ongoing commitment to the program, and will take place via Zoom from 6:30pm - 8:00pm. Chester County Commissioners’ Chair Marian Moskowitz said, “Throughout this pandemic, Chester County’s protected open spaces have been a haven for thousands of people to safely visit
and enjoy, and have helped to not only improve our physical health, but provide a remedy for our
emotional and mental well-being too.

“Anyone who wants to find out more about the true value of preserving open space in Chester County, and how their own local community can contribute, should ‘attend’ the summit.” Each year, the Chester County Planning Commission inventories and maps all protected open
space in the county through its Protected Open Space Tracking (POST) system. Last year, it was reported that a total of 142,000 acres of open space, or 29.3% of the county was protected over the course of 2019. This year, the findings indicate that the addition of 2,100 acres protected in 2020 brings Chester County to 144,000 acres of open space, or 29.7% of the county’s land.

“We are inching closer to Chester County’s current goal of 32% protected open space, which is amazing,” said Chester County Commissioner Josh Maxwell.  “The benefits of our 32-year commitment to preserving our fields, forests and farms have increased the quality of life for all
of us, environmentally and economically – way beyond what was imagined back in 1989, when the program began.”
The 2021 Open Space Summit will provide an overview of preserved land data, followed by presentations about what Chester County’s towns and townships can do to protect open space within their own communities. Topics will include information on open space tools (implementing zoning ordinances and other programs) as well as outreach. A question and answer session, along with break-out group discussions about Municipal Open Space Funds, Agricultural Preservation, and Conservation Tools, will conclude the summit.
Chester County Commissioner Michelle Kichline said, “A key part of the success of Chester County’s open space program is partnership, especially with our many conservancies and our municipalities. As we look to expand the network of protected open space, we will focus on
connecting larger expanses of preserved lands, and ensuring that protected open space and working lands are appropriately managed.
“These actions will help us to meet environmental goals, and contribute to the continued health and well-being of everyone who chooses Chester County as their home.” To register for the 2021 Open Space Summit, visit
