Greenville & Hockessin Life Summer 2021
Letter from the Editor:

We’re very pleased to present a photo essay titled “The extraordinary resilience of Joe Biden” in this issue of Greenville & Hockessin Life, the first one since Delaware’s favorite son was sworn in as the 46th President of the United States. Through the years, the stories of Joseph Robinette Biden have become ours, burned into the folklore of Delaware like trusted fables placed on a bookshelf. We hope you enjoy this photo essay featuring the work of Moonloop Photography and words by Richard Gaw.

This issue also features a story with details about the Delaware Museum of Natural History’s evolution into the Delaware Museum of Nature and Science. The “nature” will lead visitors to trails and other features outside, while the “science” will include the spotlight on local research, opportunities to be citizen scientists, chances to see the science going on upstairs and curriculum-based programming for schoolchildren of all ages. Interaction will be front and center when the transformation is complete.

In “Aces of harps,” writer Ken Mammarella writes about Greenville siblings Valentina and Andrés Ramos, who have won multiple honors for their skill with the strings.

Another story features several local members of the Delaware Photographic Society who share some favorite images, stories and tips.

While Greenville and Hockessin may appear to those casually passing through them to be quiet ‘bedroom” communities with little history to discover, the two small towns in northern Delaware actually have quite a bit of history to explore.

Writer Gene Pisasale has a story that explores how, between these two small towns, there are two renowned museums, an agricultural center, numerous sites listed on the National Register of Historic Places, as well as a nearby school named for one of the most famous entertainers of the 20th century.

For the past three decades, Dr. Tamara Blossic and her team at Hockessin Chiropractic Care have been helping generations of patients in Hockessin, Greenville and beyond achieve pain relief and better health with quality chiropractic care. Recently, Dr. Blossic sat down with Greenville & Hockessin Life to talk about what led her to chiropractic care, the “Healing from the Core” philosophy, the author she’d like to invite to her dinner party, and much more.

We hope you enjoy these stories and we’re already hard at work planning the next issue of Greenville & Hockessin Life that will arrive in the fall of 2021. If you have any suggestions for stories for that issue, please contact us.
