Bringing People Together

Dear Readers,

My vision for the 10 newspapers I publish in Bucks County is to bring people together in a meaningful way.  I feel that we have been able to do so by publishing our regular monthly newspapers and this annual Community Guidebook (our regular January edition), giving attention to human talents and corporate entities that spring up out of need, and how they interface into a social infrastructure.

Uptown String Band now in the banquet hall business

In October 2015, the Uptown String Band, which had been practicing at the William Penn Fire Hall, located in Hulmeville for approximately 30 years, entered into a new lease agreement with the Parkland Fire Company to lease the Uptown Hall (formerly the Parkland Fire Co. Hall).

Uptown Hall is now Uptown String Band’s new home, where it will practice music and drill every Tuesday night. The hall has undergone a major renovation which has transformed the hall into a beautiful banquet facility.

The hall can accommodate a small intimate setting of 50 people or less, or a large event of up to 200 people. The hall has a spacious kitchen for reheating and keeping food warm. The Uptown String Band will be managing the hall and hopes the renovated hall will be mutually beneficial to both the community and the band.

The Village Renaissance Faire

The Faire’s authenticity, diversity, and more than 9,000 attendees annually make it hard to believe that the 17th Village Renaissance Faire is produced by and for the benefit of the Village Library of Wrightstown, but it IS true.

The small library has created what is known as one of best weekend faires around, so even if you don’t want to be part of the Magic, you will not want to miss it this September 17th and 18th on the donated Middletown Grange Fairgrounds in Wrightstown.
