New Gretna Boy Makes Good- Harold Altscher

I got the following email from David Altscher the other day and thought I would pass the good news along to all you blog readers. David and his brother, Harold, grew up on a chicken farm on North Maple Avenue in New Gretna in the 1950's.  You can find a story that David wrote about his childhood in New Gretna on page 3 of Issue #10 of  the "Bass River Gazette" at the following web address:

Hello New Gretna People,

Just wanted to let you know, one of your own made good:) My brother Harry, AKA Harold, is the second on the list below. Not too bad for the kid of a poor old chicken farmer.
