Phil Goldman 259 Forest Blvd 1949-80 259 Forest Blvd was original address and lived their from 1949 until my parents Norma and Morry Goldman moved in 1980. My family which includes my sister Ruth who graduated in "67" and I graduated in "64" loved Park Forest. There will always be a wonderful feeling in our hearts for having grown up in such a wonderful town. The open space, the schools, Aqua Center, Bowling Alley, and the Shopping CTR which I guess is not what it once was, was all really great growing up. I always tease my wife Jan who is from Beverly neighborhood in Chicago and my daughters Erin and Meg, that I will retire in Park Forest. Probably not that bad of an idea, but it is hard to go home again!!!
Get in touch if you like to e-mail or would like to just chat about PF.

Growing up in Park Forest was a lot of fun with my brothers Aaron and Eric, the Goodrich gang (thanks for the fort), Rick and Scott Croy, Rob and Dylan Putnam, Seth (sorry we never returned your encyclopedias), Kevin (the only one unscathed by the mud-ball incident). Probably not as much fun for all of our parents.

Unfortunately - I will not be able to attend the Fourth of July festivities. My folks still live at 202 Juniper and my Dad is President of Area J and has done an outstanding job of managing this Coop through many years with a reflection of the pride of the people who moved there to raise their families. I get home as often as I can. Park Forest was an ideal place to grow up and I miss it.

Have been back at least 4 times over the years, the last two with my children. Things have changed and remained the same in many ways. Fond memories of a safe, happy, full childhood. Latest story was a visit to Richton Park Barber Shop, driving by decided to go in. Like I was in a time warp. All three of the barbers who gave me my first haircuts were still there sitting in the chairs. After introductions they asked about my Mom and my brothers--what a memory!

We moved to Park Forest in December, 1952, soon after my 3rd birthday. I attended Mohawk Elementary, Westwood Junior High, and Rich East High (Class of 1967). Since my wife is from the South, after living in Park Forest again for a couple of years after our marriage, we moved to Florida in 1982 and to Louisiana in 1990. I would love to hear from anyone who knew me or our family from 1952 to 1982!
Kristine Nordtvedt 159 Nashua st 1954-64 I missed the celebration however I am desperately looking for people I grew up with when I lived there from the years 1954-64. It is very important that I find at least someone. I attended blackhawk elem and jr high schools. Please help me in my quest as there is a very important reason I need to do this!!!! thank you,Kris
