From Jack Wahlberg:
New York City, NY
I remember Pastor Arell, Pastor Cedarleaf, Al Larson, somebody we called “Gam,” a Mr. Herbert, Joseph Toft who taught me to play Eb Alto Horn, and who was the Band Master at Kallman when I got there, and also the Bandmaster at Central Citadel Salvation Army Corps where I also played.
Camp Memories include Word of Life Island, Camp Whitaker, (also Camp Joy) at Lakeside Bible Conference, and Star Lake (Salvation Army Camp).
Good memories of Mr., Persiko taking us to Riis Park. Lots of memories about the many events we were privileged to attend such as Steeplechase Park outing, Palisades Amusement Park in Fort Lee, NJ, Roller Skating outings, sponsored by the Police Athletic League, The many Christmas parties for the children of the Home, The annual Bazaars and the selling of tickets to the neighbors in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. The Band events in Fort Hamilton, Floral Park and the Annual Concert Presentations at the Brooklyn Academy of Music as well as concerts at some churches. The annual Sunday School parades on one of the Avenues (Fifth or Fourth) in Brooklyn. The Sunday School involvement at Bay Ridge Baptist, Baptist Temple, and ….?
Well, there are a lot more memories that are within but surface from time to time.
Hope you get some of these sites on your Kallman Home Website going. It would be good to see pictures of fellow “Homies.”
