    There’s a place for people who do local history. Sometimes I do it myself, though much less thoroughly than you. Visit my travelogue link if you like. Thank you for this article. I enjoyed it. I’ve visited Angelica before, but not Cuba.

    Born and raised Cuban here. Great article, thanks for visiting and writing it. You should rethink the title to “Cuba; cheese but no cigar”

    I grew up in Cuba in the 50’s and 60’s. My father, Bob Flower, was the Chief of Police and also a country western musician and singer who played almost every weekend in the Pavilion among other places. There were so many activities to do when I was a child….unfortunately they’re all gone now.. The Olive Crest Amusement Park on Cuba Lake was the best!! They had mini-golf there, too. Across the street from that was the roller skating rink and behind that was a race track. The theater on Main Street is also gone… Cuba has made a lot of changes but there are still SO many great things to do and see…

    I also grew up in Cuba, plus spent 24 more years on Windsor St raising 3 wonderful kids. (My own Mom never called US “kids”. We were “children”.)
    Now, my husband & I make the trip from Batavia several times a year, attending the Garlic Festival & especially events at Palmer Opera House!
    THANK YOU for the 7th grade Social Studies review!!!

    I went to school when moved to Cuba in my 3rd grade. I graduated in 1954 and felt the teachers and the principle were so grand I always felt Cuba Central School was a safe haven for me. May all the people I knew in school, my after school job at the hospital and a summer as a soda jerk at the Cuba Lake Pavilion. May God bless all! Many fond memories and I do try to visit when I can. A wonderful write up by this author. Thank
    you for a classmate who sent this to me.
