Hello Bill,
My name is Frank Wojcik and I was there "that day" at the so called, bubble gum riot. Seems, we share similar experiences.We may have been classmates, and like you, I moved away from Shenandoah, at approximately the same time, in September of 1946. You and I can contrast childhood, in a small town, like Shenandoah and childhood elsewhere. For me, a big city.
As I look back, I was fortunate to have spent my early childhood there.
They truly were "Happy Days".
My experience was the Italian American one. I lived on the 400 block of West Coal St. and attended Our Lady Of Mount Carmel Catholic Church.
I found some pictures, that were in a shoe box all these years. They're like a time capsule.
I'll send them to you and you can include them in your memories, if you like.
