HIGHLIGHT OF MY LIFE

My family is from Meriden, CT where I grew up. Our summer home was at 43 West Cherry St. Born in 1931, I remember the Anchor Beach life each summer being the highlight of my life. My cousins, Myron and Paula Yudkin lived on the same street along with the Brenner, Grodd, Gelbert, Zaientz, Perlin and Lebov families. Does anyone remember the Tobak soda fountain and pinball machines at the corner of Village Rd. and Kings Highway or Peterson's Food Store, Sussmans Variety Store or the little Post Office that we went to daily to collect our mail? My grandfather,, Harry Gordon, who was a scrap iron dealer in Meriden, CT was involved in the start of the Woodmont shul . He walked there every Saturday with my dad and uncles to observe the Sabbath. I met the love of my life on my 13th birthday in Woodmont. The late, Dr. Morton Weyler and I were happily married for 61 years until his death in 2013. My memories of Woodmont are endless and beautiful and will never be forgotten.

I remember all of those places. Tobak's ice cream, Peterson's, Sussman's (it was full of wonderful toys and games), and the two Miss Sussmans were always there. I remember the post office on the corner. Across the street, more or less, were the Seaside Pharmacy (now a private home) and my mother's and grandmother's hairdresser, who also came down for the summer. I can't remember her name. My grandfather, Dr. George Goldman, bought the house at 195 Kings Highway, or New Haven Avenue, at the corner of Seneca Place, in 1943, and it was sold in the 1970s. We went to the beach there, and I loved it.

My grandmother shopped at Peterson's Market in the 60s. Next door was Clark-Hall Hardware store and across the street Ann Cleto's Hair Salon. We went to the Woodmont Library in that area and there was a pharmacy on Village Rd. as well.

I certainly remember Petersons market down the street from my summer home. Harry Mangen was the owner. I also remember the fishman blowing a horn as he entered our yard with a truck that had sides that opened up to an iceful of fish. There was a pharmacy behind me with a soda fountain and next to Petersen's was a hardware store that had very little inventory. There was a mailbox outside the post office and a phone on the corner.
