Since joining Facebook a couple of years ago and reconnecting with friends from Northborough I have been thinking about some of my favorite places and activities. The more I thought, the longer the list got.
This is Peaslee Elementary School, called Maple St School when I started there. I spent my 1st 6 years in school right here.
I spent my last 4 years right here at Algonquin.
I always looked forward to the Saturday that Mom and Dad would announce we were going to Spags. There was always so much to see and it wasn't like going to Bradlees where everything was organized and predictable. You never knew what would be there or where you would find it. I was sad to learn that Spags has shut its doors.
Wednesday evnings after Primary we would come home and Dad would have pizza from Westboro House of Pizza waiting for us. I remember that because they offered 1 free pizza if you bought 5 we could each have our favorite kind.
We would go to Kimball's Ice Cream in Littleton, MA once or twice every summer for ice cream. The lines were always outrageously long, but it was worth the wait.
Is there anything better than a fresh Boston Cream Donut?
This was a great place to meet and hang out. Sometimes on the way home from a stake activity Brother Kinney and President Bates would stop and treat their passengers to ice cream.
The Northborough Memorial Day parade was a tradition. I marched in it a few times with the Girl Scouts.
It wasn't much if you compare it to a big city parade, but it was ours and no one ever complained.
I borrowed this picture from the I Grew Up in Northborough page on Facebook.
Other Memories that have no pictures are the chicken farm. It announced spring to our neighborhood, when they fertilized the fields.
The smell of candles in the air after the candle factory burned down.
I could probably go on. What are your favorite Massachusetts Memories??
