Greenville & Hockessin Life Summer/Fall 2017 edition

Jul 04, 2017 08:03AM ● By J. Chambless

Welcome to the summer/fall issue of Greenville & Hockessin Life. In our cover story, we profile longtime Delaware style icon Michael Hemphill, who recently relocated his Michael Christopher Salon & Day Spa to Greenville. We look at the guest bartender nights held at the BBC Tavern & Grill, and how they provide a much-needed source of income for area groups and non-profits. Siobhan Carroll, a writer and associate professor at the University of Delaware is the subject of the Q&A. We talk to Carroll about her interest in British literature, her work on a new novel, and her favorite place in Greenville. We look at how kickboxing builds physical strength and confidence, and we profile the owners of Adorn Goods, a business in Centreville that combines nostalgia and contemporary flair. Our History feature looks at the Green Hill Presbyterian Church, which has roots in the 1840s and a vital presence in the community today. We also meet Rick Neidig, a longtime technical director who brings his expertise to the theater program at the Tatnall School's Laird Performing Arts Center. We hope you enjoy this issue!
