You've come to the right place!


Hilda Day and her son, Steve, came calling one afternoon at 220 Wilson Avenue.

Hilda said that Steve was taking piano lessons at his school (Hamilton Christian) and doing very well.

They were to have a recital soon and Hilda and Dean had a keyboard at their home, but no piano. Did I know of a neighbor who had a piano, who would not mind a boy practising for an hour or so after school?


I said, "Hilda, you have come to the right place. Just let me call May Mancuso!

I called. May said, "Ada, you send that child right to me!"

May and Steve had a fine time! (He still studies piano.)

Just another Margaret Place Neighbor story.
