SWPA Trivia, Poems, Sto­ries and Many Vin­tage Photos.
There is a road you haven’t trav­eled down for some time.
It is in the back of your mind hid­den away. Take a strol­lown that road with me today. Get in a cool stream on a
hot sum­mer day of your child­hood and let it carry you to a
place you haven’t been in a while.
Th e beauty of the rolling hills and mead­ows, the smells
cap­tured in a warm breeze on a spring day and the taste of
a home­grown tomato sand­wiched in between two pieces of
Grandma’s home­made bread can take you back to a moment
in time that you would’ve oth­er­wise for­got­ten. Th e
sights, sounds and smells bid you come and they never fail
to remind you that you grew up in South­west­ern Penn­syl­va­nia.
