The Society owes a big thanks to Gil Burnett (right) for leading a group of us on a tour of the Boardwalk, pointing out where many of the iconic businesses of yesteryear were located. Now I finally know where his snowball stand was.  We hope to do weekly tours next summer, and this was great training for those who will be doing them, in 2018.
