  1. If the Trolley Tour scheduled for the South End of Town is anything like the one from the last two years we had the privilege to partake in, then it is an absolute “must see” event.
    I do like my photo of the trolley, if I say so myself.

  2. It was my privilege to be a friend to Dr. Burke. When he visited Cheshire in the last years of his life, he stayed with us. He was a fine person and I will always miss him. God rest his holy soul. Patricia.

  3. I was fortunate enough to know Dr. Burke personally. He stayed with us when in Cheshire during his last years, Unfortunately, he had a fatal condition that ended his life. I will always remember this fine gentleman and mourn his passing to this day.
