link to picture of Father Griswold. What do you think?
It's hard to tell. I haven't seen him since just before I joined the Air Force in 1965.

I just heard from Ed Griswold. The priest you suggested I contact ended up being the person I was looking for. Thanks for all your help.

Week or so was all it took for you.

Roberta was on top of the detail you needed.

I belonged to Troop 56 about the same time. Skip Cooney was tall and thin, yes? Glasses? I do remember Scoutmaster Frank Mirro (4 daughters!) and the Asst Scoutmaster Chuck Something-or-other who lived next door to Frank behind a VFW? building that faced Union Ave. Troop first at the VFW next to the railroad cut and later acquired a larger building on Union Ave facing the bay. Lots of fond memories hiking up to Hidden Hollow for district camporees. Troop 56 always won the flag for best campsite.

Thanks for responding. American Legion it was. Were you there when they were still meeting in the small building on Jersey Ave next to the railroad? Had a look on Google Earth recently and couldn't find the larger building on Union Ave facing the bay. Looks like most of that area was wiped out by the hurricane. I think Frank Mirro's place was on Park Ave just around the corner from Union. Have any recollection of this stuff? The Raritan bayshore has changed so much it's hard to recognize most places now.

I have the book "Images of America---Union Beach" by William H. Burket. I bought it from Barnes and Noble. I haven't been to Union Beach since the late 90s but heard, through a friend, that the beach front was pretty much destroyed. I really enjoyed living there.

The last time I was there, the beach was done over and there were condos right across the street.
