358 Churchill Blvd


Marty,

Normand took this photo of 358 Churchill. It used to belong to the Grow
family. Probably still does.
Ernie Grow was the town's electrician in the 1960s and 70s.

Sorry about da Bears. I have to confess I was cheering for Peyton
Manning to win because I always go for the team that has gone the longest since
winning a championship. I hope you won't hold it against me.
