Get ready for Lambertville-New Hope Winter Festival 2014!

by Mimi Rowland

This year’s Winter Festival offers both new events as well as the much-loved standbys, and promises fun and entertainment for all.

This will be the 18th year of the incredibly popular Chili Cook-Off, featuring the best chili recipes from a wide variety of local restaurants. Nothing goes better with chili than beer, so of course plenty of that will be on hand as well. This year it is being provided by a local favorite, Triumph Brewery. You even get to take your commemorative pint glass home at the end of the Cook-Off! Come to the new location at the New Hope Fire Company on January 26th and see who will take home the coveted trophies this year, with winners awarded by a panel of judges and also by the Cook-Off patrons. Tickets always sell out for this event, so get yours soon!

Lenape Valley Foundation seeks donors to spread holiday cheer

While holiday time is one that is supposed to be filled with joy and happiness, that is not the case for many of our friends and neighbors in Bucks County. Lenape Valley Foundation (LVF) hopes to make the holidays a little brighter for those in need. 

The Holiday Assistance Program, an annual effort organized by LVF staff and volunteers, was developed for just that purpose. For the past 55 years, the compassionate and caring staff of LVF have been there to provide treatment, crisis services, case management and community supports for children and adults in need. 

More than 7000 residents of our community utilized one or more of LVF’s critical services this past year. The doors of LVF’s high-quality programs are always open to those who have the greatest needs. This year, as it has done over the past few years, LVF is helping consumers who are in need during the holiday season.
