State Senator Andy Dinniman

The Spirit of the Season – I enjoy seeing everyone at local Christmas and holiday parades. Tomorrow, I’ll be participating in the Downingtown Christmas Parade.  Please also remember the importance of giving back to those in need season. My West Chester District Office continues to serve as a collection point for nonperishable food items for the West Chester Food Cupboard and coats for homeless and hospitalized veterans through David’s Drive.

Chester County Historical Society

History Comes Alive – Our local history is more than the past, it’s part of the shared values and heritage that help define us as a people. Recently, East Bradford Township, West Chester Borough, and the Chester County Historical Society (CCHS) received more than $40,000 in total state funding to support their historic preservation efforts. These grant awards come on the heels of the CCHS’s winning $150,000 from the National Trust for Historic Preservation to support important roof and infrastructure repairs. Read More.

You have the option of purchasing an annual, 3-year, 5-year or 10-year license at They also make a great holiday gift for the outdoor enthusiast in your life. And please be sure to only purchase directly from the commission’s official website, as there are scammers targeting anglers and hunters with fake licenses on the web.
