Reunion for Dickeyville Kids of 1940s, 50s & 60s

Yes, it is finally happening! The Dickeyville Kids will return to our old haunts. We were friends, acquaintances, baby-sitters, and babies that had sitters, sons, daughters, siblings, and friends. Our memories extend from Victory Gardens by the Dam in the 1940’s to the upheaval of the 1960’s and even beyond. Within this little valley, on the Western edge of Baltimore City, we shared a childhood, not without its difficulties, but filled with play, games, ice-skating, sledding, and lazing by the Gwynns Falls. Free in so many ways to grow up, surrounded by a largely untouched natural world.

Event Details
  • October, 7th 10am – 8.30pm
