The link above will bring you to my latest column for this last week in May. Click on that link and come back to the year 1944 with me and my buddy Don Slabicki as we make a nostalgic visit to the past. The photo is from Ms. Linda Wortelmann Taylor, a relative of the Plaag family. The photo is dated 1935, but that little ticket booth in the photo was just as it was during the years I write about in the column. The column tells of one of those many ethnic picnics my buddy Don Slabicki and I, and countless other neighborhood kids made to that grand old picnic ground that once reposed within the area of Sylvan, Edwin and Atkins Avenues in Hamilton Township. Come back with Don and me to a summer Sunday Polish picnic at Plaag's Grove; you're gonna have a great time!
