A former member George Schofield is celebrating his 99th Birthday on May 19 of this year His family is throwing him a party and requested that we would really make his day if some former members sent a congratulatory Email to him.

I came home from Nam & Korea in 1968, my parents had moved to 644 79th St. in Bay Ridge. George lived next door at 646 and talked to him a few times before I married and moved.
