A few years ago, I went back to my home town to attend my 60-year high school class reunion. The day after the festivities, I took my camera in hand, got in my car, and spent most of the day on a sentimental journey. I drove around the town, remembering what it had been like when I was a boy growing up there many, many years ago.
The stories in this book will tell you about the schools and churches I attended, the places where members of my family worked, and places where my friends and I played.
You will enjoy the sounds, the smels and the social events of a vibrant community. You will visit the playgrounds and parks and go to picnics and parades. You will go swimming, skating and sliding, and hear about how we kids had fun back then. You will learn about chairs and cheese and other things that were important to the life of our town.
My first Sheboygan book was about the people who were an important part of my like when I was a boy; this book is about how those people lived, worked and played. It was a different world back then...one we sometimes wish we could live over again.
Welcome back to Sheboygan!
