The Greens Sale offers a stunning array of beautiful and affordable handcrafted wreaths, floral arrangements, ornaments, garland, and more, all handcrafted by our talented CCHS volunteers on our Holiday & Greens Sale Committee. Also available are greens and holly in generous bags for the do-it-yourselfer. To complement this event, a bake sale of delicious holiday favorites is planned, and luminaria sales are ongoing (see below).

Congratulations on 200th Anniversary Bethel A.M.E. Church, West Chester

Bethel A.M.E. Church has been the cornerstone of the African American community in West Chester for 200 years. Among its members were leading business people, the teachers of Gay Street School who molded a generation of leaders, and civil rights leaders like Bayard Rustin. Here is a photo probably taken on the 150th anniversary of the church.  Can you identify any of the people pictured? The photo archives appreciates your assistance.
