HOOTIN’ AND HOLLERIN’ AT REEVES PARK – So long as there’s no rain, and sometimes even when there is, a playground can create the biggest smiles on kids of all ages. Saturday’s (Oct. 2, 2010) weather at Reeves Park in Phoenixville PA was perfect for outdoor play, with bright sun, a moderate breeze and cooler temperatures. So youngsters, their parents and grandparents all took to, or sat nearby, the playground equipment, enjoying a day together.

SCHOOL’S NOT OVER, EVEN IF CLASSES ARE DONE – In the early evening sunlight Monday (Aug. 30, 2010), members of the Spring-Ford High School Marching Band were out getting their practice in (above and below), on the newly paved parking lots at the Lewis Road, Royersford PA high school’s east side. Routines were rehearsed over and over again, even as two men armed with chalk and a measuring tape (bottom) plotted out football field dimensions on the lot so marchers could get a better idea of where they were supposed to be.
