The New Gretna "Two Fors"

I was reading the local restaurants ads in the newspaper the other day and noticed that many were advertising "two for" dinners, two for the price of one. I guess it's a way of encouraging business in today's slow economy.

That brought to mind our own New Gretna "Two Fors", Murray and Jean Harris. They both received college diplomas at Rutgers University at the same ceremony held on June 6, 1962. You could call it a "Two For" degree day, a very unusual event for a husband and wife, which earns the Harrises the Blog's 15 MINUTES OF FAME AWARD. Congratulations, guys!

Tuckerton Beacon - June 14, 1962

The Harrises are also mentioned in the "Peaches and a Plane Crash in the Pines" story on the Wednesday, December 10, 2008 edition of the Blog. You can read it by clicking on the link below.

I hope Murray and Jean can find a place on their mantle for the 15 MINUTES OF FAME AWARD. I plan on delivering it to them when they return from wintering in Arizona.
