Leadership void may doom Community Fair

Noting that the future of the Unionville Community Fair is in jeopardy, the fair's executive board is seeking its next president and treasurer – positions that have to be filled for the fair to continue.

The Unionville Community Fair needs a president and treasurer to continue operating.

The Unionville Community Fair needs a president and treasurer to continue its record of unbroken service to area residents for 91 years.

The Unionville area is rich with dedicated community leaders, and the fair needs just two, and only for a two-year term. The structure of the fair is financially, programmatically, and logistically sound; an experienced board and many volunteers stand firm in their commitment to serve and support, said a press release from the fair's executive board.

Over the past 91 years, the Unionville Community Fair has grown from a grassroots school harvest festival to a vibrant community institution.  In mission, it stands on solid ground to honor the area's agricultural heritage, promote environmental education, and provide engaging family and community-centered programs, the release said.

To ensure that the fair continues its unbroken record of service to the community, the board has conducted vigorous recruitment and has met with many community leaders, but efforts to secure leadership commitments have been unsuccessful, according to the release.

As a result, the board is now reaching out to the broader community for support.  If these leadership positions remain unfilled as of Feb. 29, it will be necessary to cancel the 2016 Unionville Community Fair, and likely, all future fairs, the release said.

The board is urging members of the community to join it in respecting the heritage and assuring the future of the fair with a gift of leadership.

Anyone with interest or questions is asked to contact Danielle Chamberlain at 610-299-7525.  All interested fair supporters are encouraged to attend an upcoming meeting at the Willowdale Chapel, 675 Unionville Rd., Kennett Square, Pa., on Feb. 17 at 7 p.m.

It is time to start thinking about Spring Softball!
We are very excited about the 2016 season as we are making some improvements to our 2015 program.

Perhaps the biggest change will be to our age divisions. We have added an age group and we will now follow the standard age groups used in most softball programs. So we will have PeeWees, 8U, 10U, 12U and 16U programs. This change will ensure that players have the best ability to grow and play at their skill level.
We are also excited to have a 16U team that will be led by Mark Royer. We are finalizing plans now that will ensure that our 16U girls will have a full season of games with other programs in the area.

Another change will be in our 10U and 12U schedules. We are completing plans that will give the girls to play a much more exciting season. The girls will have the opportunity to play more teams with a few games with some local teams. This means that there will be a few (up to 3) "away" games, however the travel is kept to a minimum and is within 15 miles.

We know that one of the attractions of our program is the local nature of practice and games. By adding up to 3 away games we are giving the girls a much better program because they will get the ability to play a much wider range of teams. The away games will be in the West Chester area. I know girls are going to be very excited! Please register now http://urasoftball.assn.la/Registration/Default.asp?org=urasoftball

Perhaps the biggest change will be to our age divisions. We have added an age group and we will now follow the standard age groups used in most softball programs. So we will have PeeWees, 8U, 10U, 12U and 16U programs. This change will ensure that players have the best ability to grow and play at their skill level.
We are also excited to have a 16U team that will be led by Mark Royer. We are finalizing plans now that will ensure that our 16U girls will have a full season of games with other programs in the area.

Another change will be in our 10U and 12U schedules. We are completing plans that will give the girls to play a much more exciting season. The girls will have the opportunity to play more teams with a few games with some local teams. This means that there will be a few (up to 3) "away" games, however the travel is kept to a minimum and is within 15 miles.

We know that one of the attractions of our program is the local nature of practice and games. By adding up to 3 away games we are giving the girls a much better program because they will get the ability to play a much wider range of teams. The away games will be in the West Chester area. I know girls are going to be very excited! More details go to
