As I continue to think of posts for this site Millbrook Memories, I thought of my life in how many restaurants have come and gone throughout the years and how many I may have pictures of in my father’s collection!
So I decided to go on a search in the images I have already scanned and share them with all of you!
However, first I had to do some research to see who is still actively doing business now in Millbrook, New York!
So here is the list I was able to create of the Restaurants in Millbrook, NY that may be of interest to you, especially with Valentine’s Day next week!
As many reading, this may remember how The Google of Millbrook was The Corner News Store and it would always endorse local businesses, and I would like to use this site to do the same!
Enjoy Valentine’s Day by supporting these local restaurant’s in Millbrook, NY.
Now, how’s that for a title to get your attention?
I hope I have yours now!
If you have taken a stroll through Millbrook Memories, you will see that I am on a quest to accomplish getting my fathers-John Kading’s- lifetime of photos and slides into an organized system so in that I will be able to share them with their stories on this website!
I am on a quest to bring JOY to all those that these images will give to many people around the world!
I mean, after all, Millbrook had the Bennett College for years that had students from around the world!
We also had Millbrook School too!
And so many that have their Millbrook Memori
Dad’s Workplace for Organizing his Pictures
Here’s a sneak peek of a corner in my father’s living room that we have created into the workspace to get this major project completed in the months to come! Those boxes are all filled with pictures!
What makes me excited is that the suggestions in this Ebook were what I had set up for my dad to organize his lifetime of pictures, and it is working!
Yeah! Doing the Happy Dance!
So the possibilities of this Ebook in helping you or anybody that has been feeling guilty of not organizing their family photos, I can now say it is so very possible to get it done with this information!
You now have a way!
And I want to help all of you too, so you can also do the Happy Dance!
Storage of Your Photos could be Destroying them right now!
The suggestions of the proper way to store your photos is also a very important factor to consider when you are ready to organize your photo albums too!
Did you know that you are destroying your beloved pictures if you have them in one of those magnetic albums?
Yep! I know but The Corner News Store, as well as so many other stores, sold them for displaying pictures!
This book will tell you how and why you need to rescue them immediately from being destroyed in those magnetic albums!
My Plan, Your Plan
What I loved about the planning to organize your photos is that we are all so different to what may work for us, and that is so important to have a successful outcome too in accomplishing this task!
Just for those that are overwhelmed with the idea to begin this task of organizing your photos, I have to honestly say that you are not alone because that is the #1 reason why people avoid it!
But I want to share with you a poem that was included in this Ebook called:
I wanted to write this post because I felt it was time, and I needed to stop to ASK something of all of you reading this now.
First, I want to tell all of you in how much I appreciate all that have encouraged me to create this site to honour my parents, John and Marilyn Kading.
I am so touched by of all the comments that have been posted on the Millbrook Memories FaceBook page and want everyone to know whenever I visit my dad, I read them all out loud to him!
There are still some names he remembers, too!
Thankful for that!
It touches me so deeply in what words so many people have written in their memories of him, or my mother or The Corner News Store, too.
I am so grateful.
But I need your HELP
I need your help to comment, either on the website or the Facebook page to ideas in what you would love to see my post that will make your heart jump for joy in the memories they will bring up to your mind?
Ideas such as these:
The Corner News Store through the years
The Millbrook Central Schools-Elm Drive, The Middle School, The High School (Old and New)
The businesses throughout the Village of Millbrook
The Restaurants of Millbrook
The Churches-St. Joseph, Grace Church, Lyall Memorial Federated Church
Parades-Memorial Day, July 4th, etc.
Millbrook Community Day
These are just a few of the picture ideas I know that my dad has in his collection, but would appreciate your feedback in what would you want me to first focus on to bring the joy of his pictures into your hearts?
Millbrook Memories Store
My father’s famous saying I have heard him say over and over again throughout my life is this:
“Find a need and fulfil it!”
So with that, I need your suggestions to what may be your needs that I can fulfil here on this website called Millbrook Memories?
My intentions when I began this site was to share my father’s lifetime of pictures of his beloved Millbrook!
And as I continued my research I discovered many Print On Demand companies that will take your photo or image and print it on products:
and the list goes on and on just depends on the company.
Then I found a company that would take your images and make an adult colouring book from it!
(I have caught that Adult Coloring Wave, and plan to never get off it either!)
Then, of course, there are the Photo Books that many images in my father’s collection would make a SPECIAL gift for someone!
Organize the Memories
Another category that I am finding in actually performing this project of sorting and organizing my father’s lifetime of pictures as well as his slides, is the “HOW TO” Do it in the correct way so in that they can be found easily again?
Honestly, I have to confess that I have been researching this for years.
I guess I knew that this day would eventually come where I would need to use it!
And this is the time when I need to get this done!
Are you too feeling this sudden urge to get this done in your life?
Are there others like me that have suddenly awakened to the fact that time is running out to get this done?
Are you suddenly aware that time may not be on your side concerning’s your family member’s memory as they age?
Are you suddenly realizing that their memory and the stories behind the pictures may be coming to an end soon, too?
Maybe, you are like me that just has to get this project done and complete before there is no more time to ASK?
Do you have someone, maybe a parent or family member that had taken all those precious pictures of your family, and even the extended family and friends for years, to have them either being forgotten in photo albums or in shoe boxes?
Do you say that someday you should get them all organized and scanned for your children or your grandchildren?
Well, maybe you should start today, and let’s do this together, shall we?
I’ll share some ideas that have been working for me and you share what may be working for you too!
