    I also grew up in perth amboy and went to HTS. If I am not mistaken I may have gone through school with your brother Kenneth. I remember you mother and brothers well. Everyone in HTS was sort of like family. My great grandfather was actually one of the founders of holy trinity. John Kacmarsky. I still ride by the area every now and then but things have changed drastically. the church is only open for Mass on Sunday but I was able to gain entry while a janitor was cleaning. It brought back a lot of memories especially of being an altar boy for Msgr Churak for 6 years. Him and father Bumbera were always there to set you straight.

  3. John Lipovsky~ That is great to do that…I posted that info about the Terracotta plant…we shipped that all over…We were renown for that. That is a shame not to educate the people of the town on that. Certainly something to crow about…how about our ship building legacy~ My Garndfather worked on the dry dock in PA…we had a famous sub built there.

  4. I’m wondering how many of you all know about some of the facts I included in my article? I wonder how many kids in that city’s own school system even are taught the facts I included in my article… including about Perth Amboy and the Bill of Rights?

  5. I miss them also, Noreen… I’m wondering how many kids in the school system there even taught the facts I included in my article… including about Perth Amboy and the Bill of Rights?
