I had a chat with Eddie Hiemenz yesterday, and he told me about how he and his buddies would ride their bikes to Jake Kinzer's store in Center Valley. (Eddie was born in 1927, so this memory is probably from about 1940 or so). He said Jake promised the boys a free ice cream cone if they could start by the store and ride all the way to the top of the south hill without stopping.
I asked if any of them ever made it, and Eddie said he didn't think so, but Mr Kinzer eventually gave them cones anyway. It probably made Jake tired just watching them try...lol
THANKS for the story, Eddie.
....Oh, and Happy 83rd Birthday ☺
