I remember Marium...she was my neighbor for awhile. She was always so nice to me, she always had that orneryness to her. I can just picture her sled riding.
I was so sad when she passed away. She called me a few weeks before to say hi, but after saying it she couldn't remember who I was.

Thanks for the memories, when we went sled riding there it was Jay Anderson who lived there. I remember Chris Synder broke her arm there, also remember sled riding up the dam road toward the camp ground, it's all pine trees now, oh well great memories!

Anyone remember the Easter Breakfasts! If I remember correctly, they were held early on Easter morning and were served up at the Turkeyfoot School.
There was no charge, just a donation given for the breakfast. It was an all you could eat breakfast. From what I remember, it was only for the men of the area!! The school cafeteria gals and some volunteers would cook the breakfast, the area church men & some volunteers would serve the meals homestyle. Some would tell me that there were a few fellas that would just dump the plate of eggs, or what ever was passed around, onto their plate and the server would go for more to pass around again.
Doc Price footed the bill for alot of it, and the area businesses donated toward the food too.
Tooooooo bad the community didn't continue to have this Easter breakfast, even if ONLY for the men of the area, in memory/honor of Dr. Price. To help raise some money toward the cost of the all you can eat food, a minimal 2 or 3 dollar charge could be collected.
I remember the Easter breakfasts back in the sixties. They were at the Turkeyfoot school. My uncle Don "Red" Rush cooked and served food there.

The beer distributor was across the street from Mr. Moon the local plumbers home. Mr. Sam Rascona never owner the beer distributor. It was owned by his uncle John Pettina, who is still alive and living in Clearwater, Florida. His son Sam is a prominent Doctor in the area. Next to the beer distributor on the left was a small grocery store run by John Pettinas uncle ant aunt Rasconas. Next to the store lived the wable family. Their grandson Sis Wables brother was the last person executed in Pennsylvania. He was known as the Pa. turnpike killer. John Wesley Wable was his name and he is buried on Rt. 40. Across the street where Katie Miller lives was a little ice cream parlor type store, run by Thursa and Johnny Glover. More later.

Back again: Where the Lylte dance studio is was a hardware store last owned by Dane Stairs and he shot himself in the back room. Find by Keith Conn.It was owned by Grace Close before him. She lived down beside Mary Enos's beauty shop below the ( SANDS-PRINKY-NACE )chev dealership which was a hotel in the early 20's. When Mary Enos moved to somerset with her Dan ( he's died she" still alive ) was a church and than a Pizza shop.Also beside Beggs Printing on the right was a small building which housed the following. Prema's dress shop, Fred Dean's beauty shop,Adam Humbert's (ex-policeman for borough) coffee shop. He only had 10 stools and had very good bake goods.Beside the Bank on the right was Forney's jewery before Sam Downs popcorn shop and beside it was Dave Kurtz water works company.Don.t forget where sister is was BAR, D.H. Poor's used furniture shop,and Charlesworth junk.

More later Sry spelling etc. one peck at a time

When I was a kid, I remember a liquor store in the area by Sisters Cafe. Was it in where Sisters is or was it in the empty lot between Sisters and where Greg Frantz has his attorneys office?

I'm still trying to find where I put my book on Confluence. It had a photo in it of a bakery that was located down beyond where Nace's Chevrolet use to be, but LONG before Naces ever was there. This bakery, I was told, baked bread and put it on the train and took it to Pittsburgh to sell. I want to say it's name was Pandown, but I'm certain that is wrong... I'm never that good with names.

Its a small world. About two hours ago, here in Ohio, I asked my brother in law (Harry Enos) if Mary Enos was still alive. I knew that Dan died a few years back.

I DO remember Walt & Mae Bower's Store on the West Side of town. My parents bought me a pair of 'saddle shoes' there. The white & black shoes that were popular way back when HA!
Prema Bowers dress store, where was that one located?
I DO remember Kennedys store/restaurant. I had forgotten all about it so thanks for bringing that one up.
I remember Kurtz's store too. I *think* it was where Kennedys was, before Kennedys.
Didn't Joe Holt run the Culvert Gas Station?? I think Joe works at Hartmans now.
Ohhhhhhhhhh.. the Movie Theater and the gal that sold the tickets! What a memory THAT is!
Yes.. I've skated, or tried to, over at the Laurel Hill skating pond.
Anyone remember the lumber company that was behind the Culvert Gas Station??
I remember the old Acme. It was where Beggs Printing is now.
Golly, now my brain is kicking into overtime. I'm sure I'll think of more places in my memories that I'll surely share or have questions about.

I still think this barkery was owned by a man named Larry Pyle. My grandpa use to buy some of his pie and breads. He would do deliveries. I remember him plan as day coming to my granpas house. Grandpa called him the pie man. I must of been about 7 years old back then. And yes they were good pies and breads. yum yum. Hope someone soon finds out! I think we are in suspense to solve this mystery lol
