Memories of Eldrige Park

Says Deborah Schaffer: This photo was taken in 1978 when IBM would have their family picnics at Eldridge Park. My dad used to work for IBM in Owego, so as a kid we enjoyed all the family activites they used to have for the employees. In the picture on the right is myself, Deborah Schaffer-Farren, and my friend on the left is Jamie VanNordstrand-Brown. The girl in the pony cart behind us is my sister, Patricia Schaffer. My dad's knee can be seen on the railing as he watched us on the ride. I am glad I could share this photo with the community on your website.
