Very fond memories of Sunshine just steps from Little Flower School. Early yrs lived in Willis Apts on Broadway (it burned down in mid 60s) but we frequented Paul's Grocery just north of us. Owned by Paul Brogolios (sic) and the Maragos family store (Cut Rate?) Talk about older times! Tom Maupin

And of course all you city slickers couldn't wait for summer to come help us with all the work it took to provide all that food sometimes with extra to sell to the grocery stores.
