Hello to All, Just a few memories I might share. My parents, John & Loine Lynch ,lived in the summer time at Harvey's Lake since 1949 and then permanently at Pole 84 from 1960 on until they passed in the late 80's. Subsequently, I spent every summer since 1949 at a small cottage that my parents had next to the then camp grounds in Sandy Beach. I remember the out door movie theater where for 25c you could pay to sit on a bench and watch a movie. My Dad started the first Bingo at Sunset in 1949, then opened the one in Sandy Beach before returning to the location at Sunset.which he operated until the 80's. Very fond memories including my marriage to Mary Davision in 1964 at the Queen of Peace Catholic Chapel. We will celebrate our 50th this yr. I'll provide more later. An extremely enjoyable read...

Great pictures and information on the website. I have a few old family photos that I have discovered, and wonder if anyone in your group could identify what I have?

My father was the famed Big Band Leader "Russ" Andaloro Sr who was responsible for having introduced me to my notable status in the Entertainment Industry. I am disappointed the article about Fernwood Park was removed along with the picture of he and his orchestra and story along with other famous big bands that appeared there. Regards, Joseph Andaloro Sr.

I'm not sure if this would be the best place to ask, but does anyone know where I would be able to find topographical maps of Harvey's Lake? I've searched all over the internet and only have found one from 1893 (1909 reprint) i'm trying to put together accurate maps of Harvey's Lake from 1781-Present, i'm also interested in seeing old photos and collecting any souvenirs of Harvey's Lake as well.

I will always remember fondly how exciting it was to be facing the end of the century and the beginning of the new, Millennium with the Wolfe family at the lake. I used to drive in from White Haven to spend lazy summer days on the lake or sunning on the boathouse deck. I sure did love Nancy's "New Year's Baby". The only way to top that lake news would have been with Samuel Wolfe the "V" !!! Talk abt a deer in the headlights Harvey's Lake!

I was so happy to see that you recognized my mother-in-law, Nadine Teberio, as the Master Chef of the WaHoo Inn. We still miss her cooking, but her grandson is following in her footsteps with Teberio's Pizza. We still miss those crazy New Year's Eve parties, and the big bands she used to bring to the Valley along with all of the family that worked there as a team. Tony Teberio died when he was only 46 - Nadine continued to run the WaHoo Inn on her own, but it became too much for her.

Growing up in the 50's & 60's, my Uncle Bernie used to take me and my sister and brother to Sandy Beach every Tuesday in the summer. Remember swimming out to the dock was a big deal. Leo's Pizza... When we got older, we all loved dances there and at Hanson's. Great memories...great pics!

Hello everyone. It's great to see so many wonderful comments about Harveys. we al lhave our special memories of a beautiful place. Lets see, Grotto pizza, fishing off the bridge behind grotto pizza with my dad, Puterbaughs Market for groceries, my grandmother playing bingo, the arcade near grotto pizza, of course hanson's amusement park. Old Sandy bottom beach and having hotdogs under the pavillion there. I even remember the drive in movie theater. My dad won a bicycle there. A shinny red schwinn. The cottage may grandparents owned is still there. Actually it looks about the same except for the outhouse not being there. I loved sitting on the front porch on the glider and just hanging out. Especially during a rain storm. You could hear the thunder echoing through the mountains. What a great time in a great place. Everyone have a good day

My grandfather was JC Gosart. His store was at Sunset at the current location of Bill's Cafe. He was also the postmaster there. After he died, my grandmother, Mary Edith Pendleton Gosart became the postmistress. The store had been in my grandmother's family for at least 2 geneerations before Grandpa Jake married into the family. Also, the American Legion Post is named after my Uncle "Tinker" Arthur Rush Gosart. I remember Uncle Tinker & Aunt Ginger managed the Bingo at Sunset for years! My Uncle Bobbie Uzdella used to paint signs & even the rides at Hanson's.

I spent all my formative summers at the lake (Sunset) from 1947 until the 70's. I was one of Tommy O'Brien's "boys" and learned to SCUBA from him in the very early 60's. The lake is also where I learned to sail, waterski (badly) and love the water. My Mom sold her Rhode's Terrace cottage, built by my father in 1930, to family friends in the 90's. My sister and her family continue to represent us on the lake from their lakefront chalet near Hanson's. My only notoriety at the lake was that I was the tall brother of the redheads.

I grew up each summer at the Lake. My uncle was John Hanson who owned and operated the amusement park for many years. In summer our family lived above the arcade. Members of our family (mother, uncles, etc.) worked at some of the 'stands' in the park,

Love the info on James Campbell, my grandfather's "McLaughlin&qu ot; cousin. I researched his time at Multnomah Athletic Club. Did you know Don Scholander's dad was the master of ceremonies at his going away party. He coached Don and some other future Olympians during his short time there.
