Tonawanda News — Ron also noted that women aren’t the only ones trying to find suitable clothing styles.
“It seems I have a choice of looking like a rock band member or a 1920s street car conductor,” Ron said. “But then being retired, there are few people I have to impress anymore. Oh yes, you mentioned Exchange Club. I’ve been active for a number of years in the Urbana Exchange Club. I was sworn in as president this week. My first executive action will entail finding replacements for a number of committee chairs who informed me they no longer want to serve. Thursday we’ll be be going ahead of the July 4 parade with our “give a kid a flag to wave” project. Briskly walking along the nearly two-mile parade route in the July sun keeps one in shape.”
Bob Derner stopped me for a moment at my favorite Tim Horton’s to say that not only did he know of Wurlitzer organs being played in pizza parlors, but when he was in Mesa, Ariz., having visited his dad in Tempe, Arz., he went to Organ Stop Pizza where a beautiful white Wurlitzer organ rose from the organ pit every hour on the hour to play for the patrons.
“The wall behind the organ was glass so those people outside could watch the organ rise up from the pit.”
His comments came after a reader challenged whether a Wurlitzer organ was ever played in a pizza parlor.
Thanks, Bob. I love when I’m right!Contact community editor Barbara Tucker at 693-1000, ext. 4110 or email email@example.com
