No matter what, the memories last and warm my heart. I'm sure every hometown makes us recall our lives as young people. No matter what the magazines say about the "10 worst cities", our hometown is always the best wherever it may be.
I never made it to the splash parties, as my parents moved from N. Canton when I was 12. I do remember the pool, if it is the same one in the NE end of town. I grew up on a small street just north of Dogwood Park, which I used to bike through on my way to the pool. It reminds me of the winters when there was enough snow to sled ride down those hills almost every day. One time I even had to stop to keep from sledding right onto 10th st.

I am also 60 and round bellied, but I still have my hair.lol

I grew up with my parents listening to nothing but WHBC. Tradio! I hated it when I was a kid, but it brings back memories!

Try to explain to someone how good french fries are with melted butter and salted and they just stare at you.

Hi,
I was wondering if anyone remembers Carl Price and the Buckeye Wrangles? It was a local country band that played in the 60's-70's? They played at alot of VFWs, Elks, Transylvania Gardens etc. Looking for info or memorabilia.

Who remembers Nusleys Piano School? Chanticleer Restaurant? Lincoln High School? The OLD Clarendon Elementary School? The little store Gus owned on 4th...and his 2 brothers' stores on Clarendon? What about the "Shoppers Fair" ? Margaret Appell School of Dance? The little smokehouse by the railroad tracks? Renting ice skates at the park near there? And the Roller Skating Rink?

I remember Lincoln High School - did my "September Experience" there - the old precursor to student teaching. We lived not too far from the barbecue joint by the railroad tracks.

Does anyone remember Smith's Candy located, I believe, on Harrisburg Rd? As a little girl ( in the 60's) my dad would take me there, during the holidays ,to buy chocolates in 5lb boxes, to give candy as gifts. The shop was located in a house. I would like to know if they are still in business.
