the house I grew up in is small. with me back there wasn't room for Regina. so my parents' neighbor Betty Mulligan hostd her. Betty volunteers at the local historical society. Regina & I were taking her to lunch in Oberlin where we were eager to see the Jim Dine show at the Allen. before that Betty wantd to show off some of Elyria for my cousin. she drove us to the East Falls River Walk.
altho it's been open for nearly 2 years I hadn't seen the river walk before. a $600000 "revitalization" project it was mostly supportd by a federal grant securd by young mayor Bill Grace. it boasts benches made of 100% recycld plastic.
