“I’m so grateful to be here and working in a community and an organization like this,” Kelli says. “The best organizations allow you to bring your whole self to work, and I’ve finally found a place where I can do that. I’m looking forward to connecting with people in the community, to hearing their stories, and to connecting them with one another. There’s an incredible warmth and authenticity among people in Kennett."
Come learn about how American roads are designed and how we can do better on Tuesday, January 18th, when Charles Marohn, Jr., Founder and President of Strong Towns, will join us to show how, with a different approach, any community can spend less and provide transportation systems that make their residents safer, healthier, and more prosperous.
The goal of the KSQ Speaker Series is to help us establish a common understanding and language so we can work together to achieve our shared goal—a beautiful and sustainable community where every citizen can belong and prosper. All events are interpreted in Spanish, live-streamed, and recorded and available to watch on the How We Build Matters YouTube channel.
Tickets for the 10th anniversary in-person Kennett Winterfest are still available—get yours before the event is sold out!

A great time for a great cause—all proceeds from the Kennett Winterfest support Kennett Collaborative, the nonprofit that brings you Around the Square and creates programs and events that help Kennett become a more beautiful and welcoming community where all can belong and prosper..
Everyone who's been in Kennett Square this season has enjoyed the Light Up the Square tree lights, lamppost garlands, and town Christmas tree. Kennett Collaborative wants to say a huge thank you to all of the individuals and businesses who helped us absorb the cost for the lights. We're also grateful, as always, to the Borough of Kennett Square Department of Public Works for their invaluable help and to Gareth Peoples and his team at Treemendous for their expertise in installing the lights. Find a list of all who donated here—and please join us in thanking them!
At Kennett Collaborative we're excited about all that's in store for our community in 2022, and we look forward to sharing more about our plans and programs for the new year in the coming weeks.
Thank you for reading and we wish you a happy and healthy week "Around the Square."
