Having spent most of my life living in a large metropolitan area, it's nice to see that small-town communities still exist. What a wonderful community you have!

Today 10/12 is my birthday. I am reminiscing. I was raised in Maplewood, and have lost contact with my roots. I remeber sledding in the golf course, skating and watching fireworks at the park. Would love to regain touch and contact with friends

I lived on Franklin Terrace in Irvington, NJ in the early 1970's for a three year period (from the age of 10-12). I have recently moved to Maplewood with my family (via Manhattan, Washington DC,and Georgia) and am wondering if there are any former members of the so-called "Harper Gang" still in the Irvington/Maplewood area. We were just a bunch of friends (I think I was the youngest) who spent a lot of time together after school and on weekends. I remember Maria DeLuca, Mary Ellen ("Turkey") DeLuca, Olga Mackiewicz, Ray Cunningham, Billy Mahon, Jimmy Mahon, Kenny, Mel, Susie and Benny, Gina DiLea, Joe Trofimow, Ronnie Comstock, and Joe Schweitzer. I also remember from Florence Avenue my teachers Mrs. Zotkow and my music teacher Ms. Levin. Would love to hear from you. Chiqui

Anybody remember the 1970's revival band Kruzin' 50's. How about the Fuzz band? Those were great times, that created a lifetime of memories. If there are any band members out there, give a shout!

As I read all the entries, I am struck by one thing...how we all have similar memories of our wonderful hometown(4th of July-oh my yes!, skating in the park,the pool, as well as many others)!! We were all very lucky to grow up in a place that allowed us these great times and opportunities!

So happy to have found this site and to know that Valerie Gefken was looking for me. I grew up in Maplewood from 49-71 on St. Lawrence Ave. Played in Orchard Park and Gefken's florist for years. It was a wonderful town in which to be a child . I now live in a small town in NH and although it has some of the Maplewood qualities it does not match up. I would love to hear from Jefferson , MJH or CHS classmates.
Kathy Delhagen Geraghty - August 21st, 2005 at 03:16pm
Missing classmates from 1951 - 1965
Would love to hear from anyone still in the NJ area. My sister, Judy, and I were reminiscing about wonderful Maplewood and how unique childhood was. We're both in Hunterdon Cty. and will always appreciate how fortunate we were to grow up in "the village".

Sad News of One of Our Own
Wednesday, August 03, 2005 Jersey native among Marines killed in Iraq A New Jersey native was among 14 Marine Reservists killed today when a roadside bomb destroyed their amphibious assault vehicle during a combat patrol near Iraq's border with Syria.

Growing up in Maplewood 1947-1965
A good place to grow up. I appreciate NOW the school system we had. (My kids I had to send to private schools) I always longed for the COUNTRY though and have been there ever since. Being a horse nut all my life! Now I own a 140 acre Horse & Hay Farm in KY.with my husband Dave Blethen (from Montville) I miss the continued generations of family had in Maplewood.Growing up a GEFKEN (as in the Flower Shop on Ridgewood Rd.)which was there 3 generations. Lost touch with old friends Mimi Strayer, Kathy Delhagen, Sue McCaskie, Marilyn Hausmann, Pam Snyder & more. Graduated in 1965 then left town to horse country: New Vernon, Far Hills, Blairtown, Monmouth Park Race track now Kentucky

prayers for the Coble family
Don't know the Coble's as I have not lived in Maplewood since 1977 but want to send them my prayers. Can't imagine losing a child so won't say I do, just will send positive vibes. God bless you all and especially your son David.

I grew up in Maplewood on Courter Avenue. I have the best childhood memories climbing trees and ice skating at the park. I graduated Columbia in 1980. I live in Bridgewater now and it's not the same.
Susan Lorig - July 12th, 2005 at 12:50am
No place like Maplewood
I lived in Maplewood for 17 years, graduated from Columbia in 1986. My memories are all great. This site is fantastic.
Lisa D'Annunzio - July 5th, 2005 at 01:41pm
I still look back on my years in Maplewood with incredible fondness. I moved there in 1976, graduating from MJHS in 1978 and CHS in 1981. Though it has been 17 years since I have lived in Maplewood - I have since lived in Ireland, Chicago and Atlanta (for 10 years now!) -- I have never forgotten how special Maplewood was to me. Because of work I am in the NJ area almost every week (at least every other), and whenever I can build it into my schedule, I drive through town to soak up the memories. My sister (Noeleen) married one of the DeFilippis boys (Frank) and his family still lives in Maplewood, so I have also enjoyed visits with them celebrating various family milestones. Maplewood is a special place.
Deborah (Coogan) Seltzer - July 1st, 2005 at 05:28pm
Six year old David Coble of Maplewood has passed away after a long fight with cancer. His life and his family should be an inspiration to everyone. The Cobles fought hard for their son and strived to keep his life as normal as any six year old should live. So when you put your kids to bed tonight, ask them to say a prayer to this beautiful boy for his family. Then kiss your children, hold them tight and remember David and his family.
A friend - June 30th, 2005 at 02:23pm
I remember living in Maplewood in the mid 50's when it was an Air Force town. My Dad was in service and we lived on East End Blvd. All the houses looked alike as I recall. I've visited there once about 8 years ago and it had changed so much, but I still liked going back.
Mike Dopson - June 29th, 2005 at 10:55pm
We bought our first house in Maplewood and lived there for 9 wonderful years. We have so many wonderful memories. Though we now live in Martha's Vineyard we will never forget our neighbors, walks to town, July 4th celebrations, Holiday tree Lightings, and the wonderful friendships we have made. Maplewood, thank you for nine incredible years.

burktier - June 28th, 2005 at 02:30pm
Wow..lots of memories
While I grew up in Maplewood, left in 93 for the military, Tuscan,MMS,CHS(92), I recently drove through town and see the house all of my memories are from..its changed..Girard place...As I read all the other memories posted here I think back to how simple everything was...Sledding at the Maplewood Country club and getting chased by the "green hornet" Many stories..Maplewood Pool was my home away from home..I was everyone worse nightmare~really! I look back and go..WOW..one thing I never saw in any of these posts..was the 4th of July celebrations..it was the one time if it fell on a weekend we didnt have to trek to LBI..the races at 8am..followed by bottle drinking contest and pie eating contests..pet shows but most importantly the STINKY circus...and the fireworks...remember the year they all exploded on the ground?92 ish I think... My kids will never had the freedom I had of wondering around the entire town at all hours and that "safe" feeling.. How do you list all the fun stuff one very "little" town in NJ had to offer? For a child.. Very Happy here in VA BEACH but miss the simplicity of it all...

I do not know if anyone out there remembers Marc D'Angelo. He was in the graduating class of 1982 from CHS. Marc has cancer and his prognosis is not good. He is now trying some new medical techniques that are not covered under his benefits. These are getting to be quite expenseve so a benefit is coming up early in June to help with the bills. If anyone is interested in a donation they need to contact his brother Steven who lives in Whippany New Jersey.Any small amount would be appreciated.

I hope to hear from any of my old classmates..and those of you who weren't classmates, but hold a special place in my heart. Sue
Sue Hunter Chynoweth - May 22nd, 2005 at 10:36pm
The most amazing thing to me about Maplewood is that I left it in 1970 and whenever I drive through nothing has changed. 90% of the homes on my block (Kendal Avenue) are still painted the same colors!!! I know I had the BEST public school education in the world at Jefferson and CHS. (Ok the Junior High was just ok.) I now live in Manhattan but am proud of where I grew up. Walter Sabo

Duck Race Pictures
Our family is tryoing to find out who took the 'official' pictures of the duck race. After eating in town we were walking around and noticed a picture in the window of the Maplewood Stationaries from the 2004(?) race. What I am looking for is pictures of my brother-in-law who recently passed away. As he was always at the races, there is a good chance that he is in one or more pictures. Does anybody know who is the photographer or keeper of these pictures?

Looking for Pick-Up Game Stories
I lived in Maplewood from the early 60's until 1987, and graduated from CHS in 1979. I have such fond memories of Maplewood - in particular of the pick-up games (in all sports) that my friends and I would play. So much so, that I'm writing a book about these experiences, and would be thrilled if any visitors to the board would consider contributing their stories. To do so, visit my online survey at chnm.gmu.edu/tools/surveys/form/343. Or you can email me, and we can speak in person. I really appreciate it. Enjoy the summer!

Maplewood Never Left Me
I lived in Maplewood and South Orange at several different addresses from 1955 to 1968. I attended Clinton and Jefferson elementary schools, Maplewood Junior High (as it was then known) and CHS (class of '68). I never again lived in Maplewood after high school -- my parents had moved away -- but even though my childhood was far from perfect due to illness in the family, still I feel blessed to have grown up mostly in such a lovely place. I still have some friends from my long-ago childhood, and a ton of happy memories. And when, infrequently, I am in Maplewood, for all that it has changed somewhat it still feels friendly and wonderfully familiar. Love to hear from people I knew long ago.

I knew Howard very well too, and I agree that there should be a tree in Memorial Park and a marble marker there to pay tribute to Howard. I grew up in Maplewood, and went to CHS, Howard was a good guy and deserving citizen. I'm surprised nothing has already been done, and it's been almost 2 years since he died. Mayor Fred Profeta should get on this!

How about renaming Burnet Street to Wiseman Street?
Although I am not from Maplewood, I have many close friends in this town and one of them was Howard W. Wiseman who was the Maplewood Historian. Howard lived in this town since his birth in 1928, although his family moved here in 1923. Howard always said he had lived in Maplewood since he was minus 5! Howard was a human history computer! Howard was an author, an antique car collector and Archivist, saw the world 10 times over and was either President, Executive Secretary, Delegate, Registrar, Founder or Consultant, of over 100 historical Societies around the world, not just in New Jersey. The township of Maplewood should rename "Burnet" Street to "Wiseman" Street. Howard invested so much of his life into this town as he loved Maplewood so much! If there ever was a person who earned his name on a street sign in Maplewood, it is Howard W. Wiseman. I have heard other people talking about this as well and I for one will work on doing this for Howard, as I think a guy like this should always be remembered for what he did and Howard did it all. If the street name can not be changed, how about naming a new street after him? Maybe build a marker or plant a tree in his name at the very least. However you look at it, Howard is the King of Maplewood! Thoughts, opinions? Thank You.

Fishing in the Duckpond
I remember when I was a youngster a couple of us used to get a fish hook some bread and a little fishing line and wander down to the duckpond in the park and spend hours fishing for carp and goldfish. Of course, we never even gave a thought to the fact that the fish were there to feed not to catch. Well, we always threw them back and most of them were liphooked so I hope we didn't harm them too badly. Simple fun in much simpler times.

Does anyone remember the name of the restaurant that preceded the Roman Gourmet? It was rather dim and mysterious, and you stepped down to be seated at one of the booths. The restaurant served basic "home cooked" dishes. I remember it fondly because it was quite a treat to "eat out." Hard to believe there was ever a time when there were only two restaurants in Maplewood Village.

Thought I'd stop by and say "hi" again. I'm a CHS '67 graduate. I actually grew up in South Orange (204 Vose Ave) until the family moved to the S.F. Bay area in 1968. But I still have fond (though increasingly distant) memories of Maplewood, the South Mountain Res (washington rock, the deer paddock), the Maplewood movie theater, Grunings (both the one at the top and the one in town), the Town Hall deli (great roast beef sandwiches! what were those great multi-layer sandwiches called?), Meadowland park (Cameron field, "flood's hill", the pool, the brook - flooding, the duck pond), SOJHS, cobblestones on Scotland Rd by the SO Townhall, Fireworks (both SO's,and Maplewood's), the Lakawana (sp?) railroad, Montrose School, the CHS Stage Crew, the Cheudreuts (our rock band), parties, dances, "young love", and lots of other probably unmentionable stuff (hey - it was the '60's). Would love to hear from any "old friends" or acquaintances from that era, or anybody with info on CHS grads or teachers of that era. I have managed to maintain intermittent email contact with some of those folks, but would love to hear from others. Anybody know whatever happened to Kathy Bohn? Randi (or Lauri) Getz? Jimmy (or Artie) Coughlin? Thanks, Jeff W.
Jeff Williams - January 28th, 2005 at 06:53pm
I lived in Maplewood until I was 13 years old. I still miss it. I lived on Courter Avenue and used to walk to Tuscan School. I used to ice skate in the winter at the park. It was great! Many good memories as a child in Maplewood. I still miss it.

Greetings my fellow Patrick Waddell!
Wow what an attractive coincidence that we have the same names - identical spellings and all! It certainly sounds like you had a much more eventful childhood and upbringing in Maplewood than I did in Norman, OK! Email me back - I would sincerely love to hear some of your stories, and I could share a few myself if you're interested... I look forward to hearing from you with eager anticipation! Appreciatively Yours, Patrick Waddell
Partick Waddell - January 27th, 2005 at 06:06pm
HI everyone. I grew up in Maplewood. I left in 1971 at the age of 15. I attended Tuscan, MJH, and a year at Columbia. It was tough moving away, and of course, you can never really go back. Forty years ago, today, I would probably be skating at Maplecrest Park. Oh, the fun we had. The boys chasing us to grab our hats! (Remember those long hats with the pom-pom at the end?) And when we couldn't feel our feet anymore, we'd go inside and sit by the fire. Maplecrest park had alot to offer, arts and crafts in the summer,(remember the lanyiards and popcycle stick boxes?) and little league baseball games. I remember watching my brother Howie and his friends play. Water balloon fights were fun but how many of you that played in that logged area fell jumping from one stump to the other? Did you ever get off the see-saw and let the other person crash to the ground? That hurt! Well, as time moved on we began to hang at Memorial Park. Everyday after school we'd sit on the hill smoking cigs, and soon, that other stuff. In the winter we'd hang in the village looking for a place to keep warm. Remember the back of Milt's? He used to let us hang there. And how 'bout the laundry mat? Anyplace free, and warm. And does anyone remember those delicious pickles in the barrell outside the store? (can't remember what store) There is so much to remember about living in Maplewood I could go on and on. Great times at the reservation, Gary's on springfield ave., writing your name in the tunnel by the train station, "meet you behind the library at 2:46"(for the big fights,) church dances, and just walking the town. I have been able to contact alot of old friends but I can't find one very important to me, Nina Braun. I had so much fun with Nina and would like to hear from her. So, thanks Maplewood for all the great memories
Marcia Resnick - January 26th, 2005 at 12:24pm
Has anyone seen Joan?
I just found this site. Sure brings back memories. I've been back a few times since my parents left in the 60s. My brother and sister, both deceased, and I attended Jefferson, MJH and Columbia. I was class of 1950. I even went to Miss Meyers' Farm when in Kindergarten. I still Remember Joan Goalsby, and the two goats, creatively named Nanny and Billy at the farm. I'm looking for a classmaate named Joan R. Nichols who used to live at 21 Curtis Place. She had a younger brother Bobby and I believe an older one, Jimmy. She has totally dropped from sight not attending any of our reunions or even communicating with the reunion committee. Many of us remember watching baseball and Milton Berle on her tiny 5 or6" RCA TV. Anybody know where she might be? If she is? I'd appreciate any information you might be able to lend. My e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Larry Russell - January 17th, 2005 at 01:03pm
Anybody Seen Joan?
Just found this site. It truly brings back memories, for I grew up in Maplewood, attending Jefferson School (even went to Miss Meyers' Farm), MJH, and Columbia class of 1950. I've been back a few times most specifically during my fortieth and fiftieth reunions. I have been looking for Joan Nichols who used to live on Hickory Drive. She has a younger brother Bobby. She seems to have dropped from sight, not attending any reunions or even corresponding with the reunion organizers. Anybody know where she is? If she is?
