           Vintage  &  Present  Day  Landmarks

                                     Memories  of  our  Hometown


Out Hometown is a Special Place               Going down fast all the hills in town

It certainly did take its toll ;                         Thru the winters ice, sleet and snow ;

But many memories do abound                  Then we all headed towards our homes

When we look into the Soul.                         For Mum's hot chocolate we'd surely go.


Town and famalies saw the wars                 The local swim'n hole was the place

Thru many nights turned to day ;                 To cool off in the summer heat ;

But for the Grace of God                                And when Mum made our dinner

Blessings came along the way.                     You surely made it back for a seat.


We all grew up close together                        Our small town has loving folks

Reuniting as the years passed by ;                And our doors we didn't lock ;

And Prayer went out from each one               For this my dear Good Friends

When lifes adversities made us cry.               was our Good Ole' Slippery Rock !
