Is there one particular place you always associate with childhood joys?
When you think of your teen years, is there any teenage hangout that stays in your warm memory bank?
For me, the answer to both those questions is the same place – Knoebels Grove in Elysburg.
I grew up in Shamokin, about a 30-minute drive to Knoebels, or, shorter if you drove fast. When we went on rare family outings that were considered a special treat, we went to Knoebels.
