I was raised in Shickshinny from 1946 until I graduated from Northwest in 1965. My dad "Shorty" Merolli graduated from Shickshinny HS in 1936. What nature didn't do in 1972 the ravages of time are slowly doing to a town I proudly call home. I have many a fond memory of chasing the girls around the schools playgrounds. I even learned a lot there.
