My name is Jerry Sare, one of your out-of-town subscribers to the Bulletin. I am a previous resident of Buffalo. I lived there from 1932 to 1940. My house was at the bottom of High School Hill. My dad worked for the Wyoming Railroad as foreman of the Round House. Because of job conditions, my dad left in 1939 for other opportunities in Alexandria, Virginia. One year later my mother and her seven children boarded a Grey Hound bus in Buffalo and went east to Alexandria, Virginia. I have spent the last 70 years thinking about my old hometown and the many memories that I created there with my friends such as Billy Camel, the Osbourne boys, Elizabeth Ann Hill and her friend Margaret Ann. I have wonderful memories of the beautiful swimming pool where I spent every day in the summer, watching softball games at the ballpark, ice skating on the ball park that became an ice skating rink in the winter and sleigh riding down High School Hill. I often tell my children and grandchildren about my years spent in Buffalo. I wish they could have the privilege of spending time there to enjoy the town and look at the beautiful scenery. Over the last several years I have managed three short visits back to Buffalo. Thank you for allowing me to stay connected to the first 10 years of my life through your great newspaper. I hope all of the residents have a happy and safe holiday season and the New Year brings peace and joy!
