Jul. 31—WILKES-BARRE — It's not often that we get that long-ago feeling of small town life anymore. It happened again for me on Wednesday night. Yes, it was in Plymouth, my hometown, and I was attending a meeting of Plymouth Alive as the organization prepares for the 18th annual Kielbasa Festival, set for Friday and Saturday, Aug. 12-13. The meeting was held in the VFW Post 1425 on West Main Street, a place I often visited with my dad, who had served there as Commander for years, as he did at the Plymouth American Legion Post 463 on Center Avenue.
