Veteran chiropractor is helping other veterans

Dr. Doug Reilly, a veteran, and his wife, Dr. Anne Reilly, of Reilly Family Chiropractic in Plumsteadville are once again trying to help local veterans and also raise money for the Doylestown American Legion Post 210.

From Nov. 12 through Nov. 18, Reilly Family Chiropractic will see all veterans that are new patients for $25.  This will include an in-depth examination and X-rays if needed. If a veteran is currently a patient of Reilly Family Chiropractic he or she will be reevaluated and adjusted for only $10.

No insurance will be billed for these services, and all of the money collected will be donated to the American Legion Post 210 in hopes of helping to offset the cost of the maintenance of the building.  

In an effort to raise money for the post as well as help local veterans, Reilly Family Chiropractic will also extend this offer to any family member (spouse or child) of a service person who is currently in the Middle East.

To schedule an appointment call the office at 215-766-4804.

Reilly Family Chiropractic is at 5891 Easton Road.

Newly restored historic Bucks records will be displayed Tuesday

The first 45 volumes of newly restored, historic Bucks County records dating to the 1600s will be delivered next week and displayed at 9 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 13, in the Recorder of Deeds Office.

The office is located on the second floor of the Bucks County Administration Building at 55 E. Court St., Doylestown.

These double-volumes comprise the contents of 90 books of original deeds and other historic documents that had been sitting, neglected and deteriorating, in a county warehouse until recently. An initiative spearheaded by Recorder of Deeds Robin Robinson is seeking to restore and preserve the entire collection of approximately 700 books. A column about this restoration of documents was published in the Bucks County Herald on Oct. 25.

The shipment being received next week spans the years of 1684 to 1817.

One of the 45 volumes being unveiled on Tuesday will be dedicated to the memory of the late Lucille Trench, who served as Bucks County Recorder of Deeds in the late 1970s and 1980s, and later as a Bucks County Commissioner.

Trench’s daughter, Gina Trench Holub, mounted a fundraising drive in her mother’s name to help support the restoration effort, resulting in a substantial donation.

It is a hallmark of Robinson’s campaign that she is trying to fund as much of the work as possible through private donations, and to pay tribute to those who offer substantial support to it. Holub will be present for this event.

For information, call Nicole Douglas in the Recorder of Deeds office at 215-348-6210 or email nmdoughas@buckscounty.org.
