* Do You Remember…Painesville, Ohio?*
By Sharon Ojanpa Mackey, FHM reporter
On Monday, February 9th, a look back in time provided the first part of our first program for the year 2015.
Ken Quiggle presented a delightful slide show of Painesville, Ohio, in the 1950s.
Who remembers Toyland, the Gail G. Grant Store, Jerry and Bert’s Restaurant, Kresge’s and Newberry’s five and dime stores, the Greyhound Bus Station, Fisher Foods?
These, and many other businesses were brought to life again as Ken scrolled through old photos which he found on YouTube. Just about everyone in the audience had a memory or two of these old businesses.
