Growing up in the simpler times of Bentonâs â50s and â60s meant a fairly limited repertoire of activities for the kids.
By âkidsâ I encompass a fairly wide age group including high-grade elementary through high school. Last week, we reminisced about how much the pool meant to us because it was a place to cool off and also be âseenâ by oneâs peers.
There was another place which offered more or less year-round fun except that instead of staying cool, everyone wanted to âlookâ cool and also be noticed: the skating rink.
