Wherry family gave land to community

NEW CASTLE — Editor The News:

I enjoyed reading the comments in The News of New Wilmington residents regarding their borough park.

The land for the park was generously donated to the borough many years ago by the Wherry family.

Judge Michael J. Wherry, of Mercer County, who is a retired senior judge, explained this to me some years ago when he was a senior judge in Lawrence County.

Wherry’s father also was an attorney and their family has made many contributions for the good of both Mercer and Lawrence counties.
