In those years before the modern distractions of computers, television and other diversions, families spent many hours of their leisure time in spiritually uplifting and inspiring family singalongs around the piano. Once again this year, I will be giving area residents the opportunity to partake in this long-forgotten custom, except I have replaced the piano with the computer, which has an unending repertoire. This year’s Kuser Park program is entitled,
There will be songs for all ages, as I draw on the music of the 40’s 50’s, 60’s 70’s, hymns, and some easy listening from the 80’s. As in the past 5 years, the programs will be on Sunday afternoons at the Kuser Park Gazebo shown in the photo above. For those visitors who are not familiar with the location, Kuser Park is located on Newkirk Avenue at Cedar Lane in Hamilton, with an alternate entrance off of Kuser Road behind Trenton Catholic Academy. The programs will run from 6 to 8 PM. The first program will be on Sunday afternoon, June 27, skipping July 4th weekend and resuming every Sunday thereafter from July 11, 18, 25, August 1, 8, 15, and 22.

As in years past, this program is completely free of charge, and at no expense to the taxpayers of Hamilton Township.

There will be no rain dates. Most of my “Sentimental Journey” readers and visitors to this blog love the music we grew up with. Mark you calendars and come on out. Please be sure to introduce yourself. Bring a blanket or folding chair and take a very nostalgic, heart-warming, and bittersweet trip back to the years when music was music.
