Greenville & Hockessin Life Winter 2020Dec 21, 2020 11:31AM ● By Tricia Hoadley
In “The Centuries Gone By,” writer Ken Mammarella explores the history of Greenville—including a Sunday school that begat four churches, a road that went from dirty to scenic, and the benevolence of the DuPont Co. and the du Ponts.
This issue also features a story about Jeff and Chris Ronald’s commitment to act on behalf of Delaware’s unhoused citizens. Inspired after a 2018 meeting with civil rights icon John Lewis, the Hockessin couple is collaborating with community leaders to achieve an “all-housed” Delaware by 2025.
We also highlight the mission of Forgotten Cats, a non-profit organization that works to solve the homeless feline population problems in the area. Felicia Cross, a resident of Centreville, discusses the mission of the organization, and how she first came to understand the plight of roaming or feral cats while living in Ireland.
We talk to local author Terry Berry about her exploration of the creative side of writing. Berry entered a short story competition and had one of her mystery stories published.
The subject of the Q & A is Dave Lovelace, pastor of the Lower Brandywine Presbyterian Church. Lovelace has overseen a facilities expansion, two capital campaigns, increased community involvement and the church’s recent 300th anniversary.
This issue also includes a story about a new photography exhibit focusing on essential workers who helped keep the community going during the pandemic.
Auburn Heights, a local treasure, is featured in the photo essay. Every step in Auburn Heights is a journey along a pathway to affirmation.
We hope that you enjoy these stories as much as we enjoyed preparing them for you, and we wish you all good health and happiness for the holidays and in the New Year. We look forward to bringing you the next issue of Greenville & Hockessin Life in the summer of 2021.
