I love the fact that some songs can bring me right back to the juke box in the concession like it was yesterday. We were so lucky to have those summers at Lapidus and to look forward every summer to spending the entire summer with over a hundred families that came to feel like one big family. Candy Cone, El Monaco, Roast pork sandwiches, fireworks on the ballfield, pinball, summer romances, life long friends. Thanks to Leon and Mary for giving us all that and more and to Henry for being Henry.
