Hi All,
I was the photographer at the last Dance on October 29, 2011 in Cheseapeake Beach. I have not heard from many people at all interested in ordering the group photo's - So, incase you didnt grab one of my cards... Please visit my website http://makeanempression.vpweb.com or shoot me an email at : Lizgarnette@gmail.com. All of the group photos are up and there are many individual shots up as well. These photo's can be customized with your school colors, logos and whatever else you can imagine.

It was a nice dance - look forward to hearing from you all soon,

I really miss the old days, kids had respect, and crime wasn't what it is today. There are a lot of people I often wonder what happen to them. Facebook has been a great place to find some old friends and now we have this site, thank you for creating it. Wouldn't it be great to be able to go to Murphey's and grab a burger? If you remember me please feel free to contact me, I would love to hear from you.

I have plenty of memories living with my aunt and uncle in marlo heights. First girl friend of substance, and lots more on that end. Going down to La Plata where the rest of our family lived. Going to oxen hill where my cousins used to live. Going to george town and more. There are lot of memories. Got my first hair cut of style at the mall there. It seems like another life time ago as if it was a different life. Wow was I surprised when I found this looking to see whatever happen to the red barn. I loved the Big Barney. Thanks for bringing back the memories.

Comments:

I did not live at Marlow Heights but I did visit my sister there in 1971 I was 14 years old at the time and really enjoyed my stay. I remember how the girls teased me at Red barns because of my Limey accent and how I had to wait for my burger because at the time I would only eat plain burgers no mustard. I also remember fishing on the Potamac river maybe spelt that wrong but the memories are real good. I remember there were some people that had a dog named Berabus and if I had been to Red Barns the dog would not let me back into the apartment building until I give a bit of hamburger he used to wait for on a regular basis. Oh well happy memories of time past. All the best one and all of Marlow Heights from Pete Blott Hitchin Herts England

So many memories, so little time.
Teachers from HHES- Mr G, Mrs Linehan, Mrs Smith, Mrs Murphy, Mrs McDonald, Mrs Keathly, Mrs Layton, Mrs Williford... Playing dodgeball, kickball, tag at recess, Mr.g's field day/track meets (awesome!) . Going into the woods to play and explore after school. Kite flying on the playground, sledding down the Iverson Towers hill right in the 23rd Pkwy street (lucky we weren't killed!) Playing in all the storm drains.

There is so much more

Comments:

I have searched for some people that attended Camp Springs Elem. Glassmanor and Forest Heights Elem. schools. My best friend was Cynthia Green. I graduated in 1974 but not from the area. I moved in 1968 while I was in Forest Heights Elem. I remember waiting at the crosswalks at Indian Head Highway and the guards would have to walk you accross the two highways. I remember the Drug Fair, Eastover shopping center. I grew up on Branch Ave.(Camp Springs) and Leverett street.(Oxon Hill). Those were the greatest times back then. Things sure have changed a lot since then.

Comments:

I am from Anacostia but have many fond memories and friends from the Marlow Heights area. My wife Ginny Salm went to Lorraine and then graduated from Potomac in 1972. I am retired but am active in a 10-piece 60's-70's Blue Eyed Soul Band out of Bowie, Maryland called "The Nowheremen". It's a 10 piece band who reunited after 40 years that plays all of the old favorites Otis Redding, Jackie Wilson, Chicago, Blood, Sweat & Tears, Temptations and have been looking for a group like yours to see if maybe you'd like to have a band like this play at one of your annual events, or perhaps for a holiday party. I can provide as many references as you want as well as music samples, photos, website information etc. Let me know if this sounds like something you would be interested in talking about. The music is great, we just completed a joint concert with "The Fabulous Hubcaps" at the Greenbelt American Legion and we play all over P.G. county. I can be reached at (703) 791-2858 or (703) 915-7222 and my e-mail is don_halcombe@msn.com..............thanks a lot....................Don


You may cut and paste these for a sample.................

Wow, what a walk down memory lane! Great idea! I lived in Gateway Square - 4869 St. B Rd. # T-2, lived on Wheeler Rd., Marlow Hgts. Condominiums, 26th Ave in Hillcrest Hgts, and then Clinton. Red Barn - hamburger, fries and a coke =$0.49, spent the $0.51 left from my $1.00 at 7-11 where I got a whole bag of penny candy. The restaurant that opened next to Red Barn used to be called Heap Big Beef, my father worked there a short time. It wasn't very successful. Elmer Ball owned the Shell gas station, Dart Drug, Tippy's Taco House then became Betty's Taco House, Little Italy Pizza, Arthur Treacher's, High's on Temple Hills Rd., Hagan Field, GC Murphy's in Hillcrest, Iverson Mall, Woodward & Lothrop, Monkey Wards, Kinney's Shoes, Brinson's in Clinton, Hecht's, Arcadian Gardens - my brother was Santa there a couple years, Sam,'s Car Wash, Dunkin' Donuts, Jiffy's Subs, Hot Shoppes, Potomac High - Marge McCormick- Nurse, Mr. Riggs, Carlson, Zeman, Watson, Wines, Kowalski, Solanki, Dave Taylor (currently Vice Principal at Huntingtown in Calvert County, wow, too much for me to process right now! I remember ridng my bike everywhere, safely, skate boarding, pogo sticks, goat man, bunny man, Hillcrest Hgts. Boys Club, boxing ring, Bingo, my first car - a 70 Cutlass-$700, what a nice trip down memory lane!!! Great job on this website.

I have many happy childhhod memories living on Culver St. We would play outside all day, riding bikes, playing dodgeball in the street, shooting marbles, I remember a game we played called "hide and go seek tag", walking to school in the snow, the ice cream truck, walking to 7/11 picking up coke bottle so I could get some candy, duckpin bowling and, of course, my best friend Patti Acton. I also remember you Chuck, you were in my 6th grade class, Mr. Rich was the teacher. I found myself in one of the class pictures you posted under Sandymount. Thank you for the great web site, I have enjoyed looking through it and taking a trip down memory lane.

Not sure if this is the same Ritchie Vitto, but I believe it is. He passed away last month in Phoenix. He had a younger brother named Bobby and another named Stevie.
His obit is here http://www.heritagefuneralchapels.com/content/obituaries/view.jsp?OID=100161 but they did leave out the T in his name (Ritchie). I was good friends with him back in the 1960's in Naples, Italy

riding bikes and walking all over, walking to the mall

Comments:

I have seen a few familiar names in here and the memories are great. I remember walking to the mall by myself, no worries. I got my ears pierced there. My mom worked at the People's Drug store, I loved visiting there. I attended Sandymount Elem. for 4th 5th and 6th grade. Miss Krupa was one of my favorite teachers she was my 5th grade teacher. I remember some names like Becky Lee, Patty Turner, Gayle Winston, Linda Fortunato, Cecelia French? Shirley French and Steve French were older than me but my brother Mike Ling was friends with them. My brother went to the jr. high that was close to Sandymount, 7th, 8th and 9th grade. He also played sports Silver Hill Boys Club. I remember the winters me and my brother would go door to door with our shove shovels shoveling people's walks, making a little money and then going to the mall.
Dad got transferred to Ohio in 73 and this is where he retired from the Air Force and here is where I still am.

I was searching for the possibility of the recipe for Steak in a Sac and found this site. Brings back lots of memories. I moved to Ca right out of High School, and then most recently to the Pacific Northwest, which my husband,mu dog Ralph and I love. Oh, haven't found the recipe. My family must have been to Steak in a Sac a million times.
Thanks for putting up this site.

UPDATE ON HILLCREST HEIGHTS SAFEWAY CLOSING - I can confirm that the original Safeway in Hillcrest Heights at 2346 Iverson Street will close permanently for business on Saturday July 16, 2011 at 6pm. Unfortunately for the neighborhood there is no word on what, or if, a supermarket will replace its spot. It would be nice if someone could take photos for those of us who can't be there.
