Today is a Federal Holiday marking the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr.  Each January holiday I am reminded of the statue of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. that is located in a park in Chester, Delaware County, PA.  Dr. King was a theological student in Chester from 1948 to 1951.Back in 2008, a larger than life sculpture was erected in honor of Dr. King in Veterans Memorial Park next to the J Lewis Crozer Library on 620 Engle Street.  If you have never seen this piece of art, it is well worth the time.  There are benches for sitting and the library is always a good place to visit.

Wednesday is Veterans Day and there will be an Open House and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at 11 AM at Buchman Meadows, a historic building in Chester, Delaware County, PA.   Personally moved by a news story about helping Veterans, a group of local investors, Trimerge Investors, LLC purchased the vacant 42 Apartment Buchman Meadows and transformed it into affordable apartments for Veterans and others in need.  This building once served as a hospital for Veterans.
