    I grew up in Irvington (1951-65) and remember a Cub Scout trip to the Tastee Bakery, probably about 1958 or 59. The hot bread that came out at the end of the tour was so delicious! Tastee was a sponsor of Junior Frolics on Channel 13. I was in the audience twice and was given a little loaf of Tastee Bread.
  • Most Blessed Sacrament Friary , Franciscan, Virginia (guest) wrote 1 year ago:
    I was Baptised in Blessed Sacrament in Newark on Springfield Ave. I was born in 1945 and cant seem to find any record of the church. I lived on Avon Ave between 17th and 18th St. I can remember my Mom and I walking to Church every Sunday.
