Growing Up in Medway

 our family in early 1950s

I grew up in the small town of Medway, Ohio during the 1950s and 60s. Unlike so many stories of children feeling deprived of the civilities of city life and bolting as soon as they turned eighteen, I loved small-town life. Only for a short year just after college did I live anywhere except Medway. I loved knowing the neighbors and being able to smile and say hi to just about anyone walking down the street.

I loved living close to my maternal grandmother and paternal grandfather. Having grandparents who were known in the community gave me an in when it came to conversations. Yes, children growing up in a small community back then learned early on to have conversations with young and old.
