Chester County Commissioners Terence Farrell, Kathi Cozzone and Michelle Kichline presented a check for $72,000 to the Chester County Historical Society at this week’s Sunshine Meeting.

The check was part of the commissioners’ annual appropriations to organizations and non-profits throughout the county and was made as part of the formal recognition of Women’s History Month. In addition to the check, the commissioners presented a proclamation to the Historical Society commemorating Women’s History Month and noting some significant historical contributions by women in Chester County.

In his remarks thanking the commissioners for the donated funds, George Zumbano, Esq, Chair of the Board of Trustees for the Chester County Historical Society said: “The Historical Society is the official history library of Chester County, housing more than 500,000 manuscripts and 25,000 printed volumes.

“We see approximately 10,000 students every year and provide many programs for them. These funds will contribute greatly to the school and youth programs that the Historical Society offers – programs that spark curiosity, teach the power of historic objects, and keep young people engaged in their local history.
