Fond memories of Southbridge - Doreen Boulanger
Just checking in again to your
WONDERFUL site....all towns should
be so lucky to have one such as this.
I am just writing to say how
much I miss Southbridge after moving
away for the last time, I believe....although I will be visiting, I
Being from the '70's era at
SHS, I am more the gal who remembers
hanging out on Main Street on Thursday nites when the stores were all
open- hopefully they will again-when stores come back, as I know,
are bound to. Many of you loved that time, those antics and all that
much as I did.
My memories of those years- and
the whole cast of characters- the
parties, the Bat Dances, Surfer, the Rat Dances, the Zotos Concerts,
general upheaval of everything in the '60's opened my eyes and those
live in my soul today as I write this 40 years later.
Sad as I was to see the
pictures of the tornado and hear of the
hurricane barreling up the East Coast-many of us watched as you endured
horrible winter, then tornadoes, and a threat of the hurricane AND EVEN
earthquake this year as close as one would never expect!
I know so many of us living in
distant lands still check in to
your space, DICK, to relive the memories, dreams and reflect on all our
private eras there. Thank you again for keeping them alive.
I still have to say- many of my
greatest days -of all the places
I've travelled to, were right there ,growing up in Southbridge-
Much good will to you all,
