Editor’s Note:  This delightful photo essay was written in 2010 by my nephew, Georges Chedid, when he was just 13.  Due to circumstances beyond Georges’ control, it has taken us a whole year to post it. 

We dedicate this essay to the memory of our beloved Mayor Bill Klatsky, pictured on page 4. We dedicate it, too, with best wishes to Georges' father and to honor his courage and perseverance.

And so, with apologies and thanks to Georges, ENJOY!!

(Note: Georges does a cameo-- he is in the red cap on the last page).
