Berwyn Village Life reveals compassion and community spirit

Living in the suburbs can sometimes make you feel invisible, but village life reveals that just because it is part of a suburb does not mean people are not caring. Berwyn, PA, sits astride the Main Line to the west and north of the city of Philadelphia in Chester County. Part of the Tredyffrin Easttown School district it is part of two townships, Tredyffrin and Easttown. The village sits on Route 30 between Devon and Paoli. 

There have been a rash of events recently that make me realize this is a wonderfully strong community, with lots of community  support. Over the holidays we saw hundreds of families turn out for the holiday tree lighting and the arrival of Santa at Berwyn Train station, sponsored by the Easttown Veterans Association and the Berwyn Devon Business and Professional Association.

A recent violent attack on one of our store keepers, Mr Yang of Yang's Farmers Market caused hundreds of people and businesses to express their support and goodwill t0 a member of the business community by making donations to his medical expenses. 

Two other businesses Handels and the Berwyn Tavern helped to promote and host a celebration of the life of a young artist who died last year from medical complications as a fund raiser towards a foundation set up to honor her life.

Surrey Services for Seniors right opposite the fire station on Bridge Avenue helps seniors to age in place, remaining in their homes with dignity and still able to be part of our community.

Speaking of the fire company, which is all volunteer; Spa Car Wash is hosting a fundraiser for our local fire company from now till June 30th every time you wash your car a donation can be made to the fire company, just follow the link for full information on where to obtain coupons and what you have to do.

The Veterans Association hosts the Victory Run in May, and the kids run is sponsored in past years by the Berwyn Devon Business and Professional Association.

I can keep going, mentioning Easttown Library with countless programs being run for all ages during the year. T/E Cares helping families in need throughout our community, making us aware that just because we live in one of the more affluent areas of the suburbs there are many who struggle right next door or just around the corner.

All of these are reasons why living in a village in the suburbs means you are part of a community and make it a great place to live. If you are looking for somewhere new, consider Berwyn, you might just be pleased you did! Here is a short taste of village life.
