With Gratitude for the Life and Work of Nancy L. Mohr, 1933–August 14, 2021
Nancy Mohr dedicated decades of her life to shaping our town and our county in ways so fundamental that it’s impossible to imagine the Kennett we know and love today without the imprint of her passionate and tireless efforts to improve and preserve this place for its people.
Read more about this inspiring woman and her work to revitalize Kennett Square (and find her famous scone recipe!) here.
In his presentation on September 28th, “How We Build Matters: Building a Sustainable Community in Kennett Square,” Historic Kennett Square Executive Director Bo Wright will explain how the community’s various strengths will help Kennett Square successfully meet some of the challenges it faces at this critical moment.
“As in any community, there are differences of opinion, and change can be hard,” he says. “But it’s really important for everyone to have a voice and work together to build a vision for what we want our community to be. The Kennett Square Speaker Series will help us to establish a common understanding and language so we can do this work together and achieve our shared goal—a beautiful and sustainable community where every citizen can belong and prosper.” Read more here.
We look forward to seeing you at the first of these important conversations about the future of our community. and invite you to RSVP here.

As is so often the case in the world today, this weekend we live in that tension between reflection and remembrance—on this 20th anniversary of 9-11 and as we continue to grieve more recent losses—and celebration, as we come back together for events like the Mushroom Festival and look forward to the Kennett Brewfest, outdoor dining on State Street, and the KSQ Speaker Series.
Thank you for reading and for continuing to support our community in many different ways. As always, we wish you a happy and healthy week "Around the Square."
