Re: Dec. 1, 2019: Asbury Park Convention Hall, NJ

Ron B. ·
During the 1940s, when I was 6 to 8 years old, my Grandmother, Mother, and Aunt stayed in a boarding house in Ocean Grove on (known then as Decoration Day) Memorial Day weekend. We'd walk the Boardwalk, through the Casino, maybe I'd ride the merry-go-round, and we'd roll balls up a ramp and score points for more chances to play. At that tender age, I found the Convention Center awesome. Here's a bit of its history: https://noweverthen/asbury/ap1fold/ap1.7.html
