What is your interest in Milltown history?
Still have Michelin Field dirt under my fingernails.
Welcome to the site Barry. Look around, we have some great Milltown history links.
I saw that you donated the piece of the original Joyce Kilmer Oak to the school at the MEF Garden Party. Thanks! I work in the school library. It will be nice to have something to connect the kids to our school's famous namesake.
Oh, and do you remember Mary Ann Wright? She is my sister, graduated from JK and is the same age as you.
Yes, I know Ruth Skewis a little bit. I know her sister-in-law Marge much better. We talk on the phone ( which is my preferred medium) and E-mail once in a while. We are distantly related in as much as my father was a first cousin to Donald's and Marge's grandmother. I'm having to have someone show me how to use this site to answer you. And I'm also related to Ted Blumig on my mother's side. His grandfather was my uncle.
My E-mail address is Soupy32@verizon.net. Welcome to the site.
