Cathy Salazar shares her story “I remember when buri buri park ball field was completed and my son played his first little league game there. Spent a lot of time on those bleachers.”

 

Kathy Altizio Tetreault shares  My historical moment is about my husband's great grandparents, who opened Jennings Pharmacy on Grand Avenue back in 1917 I believe. They were among the first families to settle in SSF. His grandma Frances also became a pharmacist and his great aunt Agnes became an ob-gyn. He worked at the pharmacy as well, delivering prescriptions. The pharmacy closed in the '70's.
