Circa 1984: Mary Meyers Schujko Remembers Maple Shade School

Long before I got into computing, and during the time that I was writing a weekly column for the Mercer Messenger with a typewriter, many readers sent me letters which could not be published in the paper due to space constraints. I have saved many of those letters, and now after quite a few years, I am publishing them for the benefit of the community. Mary Meyers Schujko's memories of Maple Shade and her school years in Hamilton parallel my own memories of a very pleasant era in our lives. Mary, if you are a visitor, here's a re-run of a very heartwarming letter you wrote reminiscing about your years at the late, great, much missed, Maple Shade NEIGHBORHOOD School.

Hi Tom,

Do you have any more details or possibly pictures of the farm(s) that used to be located on Kuser/White Horse where the Shop n Bag plaza is now located? I grew up in that area and have never heard about a farm, trolly cars or relatives of Johnny Weissmuller residing there.

Thanks for your hard work.
