Greenville & Hockessin Life Winter 2015 issue

Dec 01, 2015 08:13AM ● Published by J. Chambless

In this issue, we talk to Debbie Harper about the year-long effort to plan Yuletide at Winterthur, which is a tradition for so many Delaware families. We also talk to Thomas Hanna, the chief operating officer of Harvey Hanna & Associates, which created The Delaware KIDS Fund in 2008 to help Delaware youngsters who are in stressful situations. Writer Richard Gaw takes readers along for a walk in woods and fields of the Mt. Cuba Center. We talk to members of the Weekday Skiers Club, a group that hits the slopes each Tuesday during the winter. We explore the Delaware Nature Society's Bird Banding Project, and we visit the new, year-long exhibit at Hagley Museum called “Driving Desire: Automobile Advertising & The American Dream” that explores the history of automobile advertising. We profile artist Linda Ford, whose abstract paintings are open-ended journeys for the viewer. The photo essay by Carla Lucas spotlights Hockessin's places of worship. We hope you enjoy this issue!
