I just wanted to thank everyone that came to the Millbrook Historical Society’s meeting on November 16, 2017, for “A Fireside Chat with the Kading’s.”
It was wonderful to see everyone and announce the creation of this website www.MillbrookMemories.com!
Millbrook, New York will always be HOME to so many of us and it gives me such joy to be able to share my father’s lifetime of pictures on this site and the Facebook Millbrook Memories page too
It warms my heart to see the LOVE that this community has shown to the Kading family over the years!
This is my grandfather Ernest Kading and my grandmother Charlotte Kading with my Aunt Helen Doland on the left and my Uncle Henry sitting on his mother’s lap and my dad on the right!
I just want to say a BIG Thank You to all that have liked, commented or shared the FaceBook Page Millbrook Memories!
On behalf of my father, John Kading and myself, Diane Kading Schoessow!
I just have to say that I am so touched by the response from this website and the Facebook page by all that have shown their love and their likes in what I am doing to share my dad’s images of Millbrook, New York!
I just have to say to all in how great it makes me feel to show my father all your comments and the likes and hearts of love on the Facebook page, too!
I am so very grateful to all of you for the support that many of you have shown since I created the Facebook page on November 16, 2017.
The website is coming along and I am trying to write posts that all of you will enjoy and to all those that will enjoy in the future since my hope and prayer is to have this become a Forever Gift to my parents.
I am still learning and it is sometimes frustrating to not know how to do this or that as I build this website, but I am committed to get this done and to teach myself as I do!
And for those that know my father, I must keep in mind in how he really didn’t know how to do this or when he opened The Corner News Store either, yet he continued anyway!
I am determined to continue with this website too, and share my father’s pictures and share the stories that go along with them too!
This is HOW I am going to do that with the Flip-Pal!
He built that small store to the one that many of you reading this remember coming with your parents or grandparents after church, or when you came to Millbrook for a visit.
Many may be reading this right now that had gone to Millbrook Central School and even been my classmate or to one of my siblings, either Johnny, Debbie or Donald.
Welcome, and my hope is to have you come back to enjoy my father’s images of Millbrook and his stories through the years of his lifetime!
I am going to be able to use the Flip-Pal!!
- I first Scan the Picture
- Go to Toolbox on my computer, phone, tablet
- Click Record tab and it records his story to the picture!
- Share on Website and Social Media!
And of course, to honour my mother along this journey as well!
Welcome to his reflections of his beloved village of Millbrook, New York!
I also plan to be sharing my Aunt Helen’s scrapbook pictures and her pictures as well in the future, too.
So please check back often!
