Pleasant memories are one of the many gifts bestowed upon us by our Creator. This is especially true for we senior citizens. To all the younger generation who visit this blog, as you age, you will realize that memories of your younger years will be a very important part of your life. That classic old hymn calls them "Precious Memories," which indeed they are. This is one of the reasons I subtitle this blog, "LOCAL HISTORY WITH A PERSONAL TOUCH."
As long as there are visitors like Ralph Lucarella, Sally Gillman, "Lakeside Girl," "Mike Kuzma," "Lee Belardino," and too many others to list who write with very welcome comments relating to their memories of younger years, I will continue to provide a very pleasant mix of bittersweet nostalgia, along with many little known historic articles that relate to our local area. It is my belief that indulging ourselves in these pleasant visits to the past are a healthy and rewarding pastime that leaves us with a sense of well being.
