A hundred years ago in Our Town

Our Town

Narberth, PA.,


When It comes to the town—YOUR town; OUR town—we ask your co-operation. We want and need your assistance, your counsel, your recommendations, your co-operation. In a word, a community can reach the highest standard only when the individual members of that community join hands and work together. If the community is neglected the individuals suffer. In vain have many people-not in Narberth any more so than elsewhere in the U. S., and other corners of the earth-tried the ostrich stunt of ducking their heads in the sand of exclusively individual interests.

If you enjoy the privileges, comforts privileges, comforts and opportunities of community life, you can't live to yourself, and the person that tries it is only deluding himself or herself, and missing half of the pleasures of life, and preventing additional pleasures in the days that are just ahead.
