From Manchester PA by Shennee Rutt

September 7, 2010

From Manchester England to Manchester, PA

A funny thing happened on the way to this blog post.  I was approached by Bill Boorman.  I was asked to share a little information about where I live.  Bill is Co-founder of the TRU-Events. Bill Boorman, is a compassionate, caring, and focused individual. He is a Blogger, commentator, Speaker, and Event Coordinator. Bill can be reached at http://www.twitter.com/BillBoorman or http://www.trumanchester.wordpress.com    He will support you any which way he can. It was a pleasure meeting Bill.  You see, I live in Manchester, PA USA. and Bill’s latest Tru event is in Manchester, England. We wanted to bridge the gap between the 2 Manchesters.

I live in Manchester, PA York County USA.  Manchester is a small town located in Central PA.

§  Population:2,350

§  .783 miles

§  494,784 Acres

Borough land was obtained in 1740 by John Nickey, and heir of William Penn. The borough was originally named Liverpool, after Liverpool, England.  The town fathers realized that there was already a town named Liverpool in PA. So Manchester Borough was born on August 26th, 1869.  Much was accomplished in the small town. Schools, fire services, a trolley ran through the town.

Fast forward to 2010. A small town in the 21st century is full of community,friendships, family, schools, recreation, shoppes, and events. Annual parades, and Ice cream socials are still a part of our borough.

My husband David and I have resided in Manchester for 11 years.

Special thanks to http://www.manchesterborough.com for the great information and history. Thank you Bill Boorman for asking me to be a contributor. It is an honor.

Wishing you the best on a Fantastic #TRUManchester event
