A big thank you to all Radnor Historical Society members and other guests for a grand time last night! I am guessing we had 75 people in the Winsor Room at the Library…maybe more.

hmm…do you think this is where everyone in Wayne goes in the winter…SOUTH WAYNE ?

I sent pictures to Ryan Richards of Main Line Media News but he said I missed the deadline for Thursday’s Suburban. He said send them anyway and he will try and get them in the paper next week.

Many thanks to our business owners who participated in this event:  John Braxton, Vince Cappelli, Bob D’Amicantonio, Lou D’Amicantonio, Art Forster and moderator, Cardy Crawford. My appreciation for Tom Costello and Nancy Costello showing up early to help set the stage, Kathy Siple for the yummy homemade cookies, and Tom Ellis for recording the event.

Tom just sent a link to the program if you’d like to watch it:

p.s. Ryan did put a picture in the January 20 issue of the Suburban!
