Eagleview Community Garden: New Location; Benefitting Chester County Food Bank

Eagleview Corporate Center volunteers rolled up their sleeves or tucked in their ties to lend a hand at the new Eagleview Community Garden – a 16-bed garden site installed and planted by Hankin Group, Cray Valley and the non-profit Triskeles across the street from the Eagleview Town Center on Friday, April 11, 2014. The produce from the garden will go to the Chester County Food Bank, which distributes over two million pounds of food per year to over 100 organizations that include food cupboards, meal sites and other social service non-profit organizations.

The Eagleview Community Garden is part of Triskeles’s Food For All program, an anti-hunger mission that aims to connect companies, schools and universities, churches and civic groups and their employees in an effort to grow fresh veggies for the food-insecure.

On April 11th, the team moved the 10 double-high raised garden beds, located next to the Eagleview Senior Apartments, to their new location across from Eagleview Town Center. The garden was reconfigured to include 12 single-high 3 x 10 garden beds and four double-high 3 x 10 garden beds. This new garden will be maintained by a team of volunteers from Triskeles, other organizations located in Eagleview Corporate Center and The Chester County Food Bank. Continue reading

Family Lives On: 10th Annual Race for Traditions

The 10th Annual Race for Traditions, sponsored by Expresspark, Inc. will be held on Saturday, April 26th right here in Eagleview. This year marks a decade of this beloved race and family event whose proceeds benefit Family Lives On FoundationSM (411 Eagleview Blvd).

The dictionary defines “tradition” as a long-established action or pattern of behavior in a community or group of people, often one that has been handed down from generation to generation. We are proud to say that the Race for Traditions fits that description perfectly. Many families return each year to run, walk or even “tot trot” the race. They have made the “Race for Traditions” a family tradition they can call their own.

For 10 years, the Eagleview and local community have come together to celebrate our mission and raise funds to continue Family Lives On’s Tradition FulfillmentSM Programs. Our unique program provides a therapeutic tool to support the healthy bereavement focusing on three critical, and often times unmet, needs in child and family bereavement support. Grieving families need (1) intrafamily connection and communication, (2) ongoing support, and (3) opportunities to celebrate a loved one’s life story. Continue reading

Silver Sky Jewelry & Gifts: What is Fair Trade?

By Cara Turner, Owner of Silver Sky: 

Fair trade is a way of empowering individual artisans and communities in poverty stricken nations by giving the artisans a fair wage for the products that they produce. In turn, the individuals and communities thrive rather than just survive. There are no large factories where individuals are treated poorly and there is no child labor. The people normally work in their homes while they care for their children or in small clean shops where they are treated well.

Fair trade is transparent. The end user knows where the product comes from and sometimes the products are even signed by the actual artist. We can tell you exactly where the products we sell come from. A majority of our suppliers are not only wholesalers but they are nonprofit organizations that bring you beautiful products and give 100% of the income back to the communities. It doesn’t get much better than that! Continue reading

Clark & Goshow: Tips on Long Term Care Insurance

Without a long-term care strategy in place, your nest egg may be the only source of funds to pay for these expenses. If you’d rather not spend-down your savings to qualify for government care or you’ve got other plans for the savings you’ve accumulated, consider long-term care (LTC) insurance.

What is LTC insurance? LTC insurance is coverage you can purchase to help pay for assistance if you can no longer care for yourself.

What should I look for in LTC insurance policies? Only consider providers that are A-rated or better and have been in the long-term care insurance business for 10 years or more. Companies such as A.M. Best, Standard & Poor’s (S&P), Moody’s Investors Service and Fitch Ratings evaluate providers based on their claims-paying ability and history of raising premiums.

When is a good time to buy LTC insurance? The day you need long-term care may seem far off but 40% of Americans receiving long-term care are under the age of 65. Remember, an accident or illness can also lead to the need for long-term care. In answering this question, you must keep in mind that your health determines whether you qualify for LTC insurance and is considered when your premium is calculated. The premium amount also factors in your age at the time you take out a policy. Continue reading
