Cliff Judson, Taylor LaRoche, Andrew LaRoche and especially Dudley Farqhuar who also returned after the program and helped us break down all the tables and put everything in the storage room.
The Friends of the Merrimac Public Library also want to thank all who attended the Library's August 10th
Summertime Tea program featuring Rita Parisi.
Rita as Mrs. Gordon, regaled us with life on the beach in 1906 Salisbury Beach and Wonderland Park, Revere Beach.
Mrs. Gordon was delightful with interesting facts about life in 1906 Amesbury & Salisbury as well as about
Wonderland Park, Revere Beach, MA which existed from 1906-1911.
Some little known facts about Wonderland Park:
---The centerpiece of Wonderland Park was a beautiful lagoon which was part of an elaborate and exciting ride. The ride was called Shoot The Chute. Passengers would be lifted in their gondolas to the top of a steep grade.
Once at the top, the gondola would be dropped down the water slide and backdown into the huge lagoon.
