This website is a quiet place to virtually come back home and reminisce on your own or with others who, like you, grew up in our sheltered little neck of the woods.
Who was your “best hometown mentor”?
Hometown Mentors was created because we wanted the memory of our mentors to live on for future generations.
Our mentors helped create our character and encouraged us to push our limits in whatever endeavors we had.
They gave us motivation, at the start of our career path to do the best we could do, in whatever we chose as our profession.
They helped us learn that we could take a valuable place in this world, no matter how small our hometown was.
We want to remember those wonderful teachers and parents and scientists and clergy and retail entrepreneurs to live on in the stories of our youth.
We wanted to remember Ms. Sue Ann Beveridge. And we were so happy when Ninety people came home, in 2013, to sing one more time with Ms. Sue Ann Beveridge. What a fun-filled weekend that was. She has since passed on but our memories of the smiles during that weekend will not fade soon.
Prospect Park Playground was revitalized by your hands and your donations. Today’s kids have safe equipment to play on and so that they might be able to make memories at the playground, just like we did.
The Hometown Hall of Fame has many well known local names with, each one, jogging a memory from the past.
In this day and age of being together separately, we will continue to post stories of local mentors so that you can come back home through our website and reminisce any time you want.
That’s what Hometown Mentors is all about.
We need your help to maintain our website, if you have an extra $20 to spare, actually any amount is helpful.
For the last 9 years we have volunteered our time and money for operating Hometown Mentors and to create this site.
